Lindsey Horan gets high praise from Vlatko Andonovski in milestone game


Lindsey Horan was all over the Korea Republic on Tuesday night as the USWNT played to a 0-0 draw.

Horan nearly put one past goalkeeper Youngguel Yoon in the 13th minute, curling it toward the bottom left corner and hitting it off the post.

Horan had another chance on a header in the 19th minute that Yoon deflected away.

Her performance earned high praise from USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski.

“Lindsey has been tremendous,” he said after the game. “In the two years I’ve been in this job, I can’t remember that she’s had a bad game or even an average one. She’s always been above average or super good. Tonight she controlled the tempo of the team, controlled the tempo of the game and had a great mindset.

“She made unbelievable divisions on when it is time for us to go and when it is time to slow down a bit. Overall, I’m happy with her performance and glad she had that in a milestone game.”

Before the game, Horan celebrated her 100th cap with the national team. The forward played in her 100th game during the Olympics, becoming the 41st member of the USWNT to achieve the feat.

Horan and the rest of the USWNT will face the Korea Republic again on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on FS1.
