Sydney Leroux to Undergo Ankle Surgery

LEROUX SURGERY
07/17/2015 4:54 PM -

U.S. Women’s National Team forward Sydney Leroux will undergo surgery on her right ankle in Kansas City, Mo., early next week and will be sidelined for up to three months.

She will miss the remainder of the NWSL season and several matches in the USA’s 10-game post-Women’s World Cup tour. The opening match of the tour will take place on Sunday, Aug. 16 against Costa Rica at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Leroux has an accessory bone in her right ankle that has been causing pain over the last six months and began to get increasingly irritated during the recent Women’s World Cup tournament.  The offending piece of bone will be removed to resolve the issue.

Leroux, who has 75 caps and 35 goals for the USA, played in four games in the Women’s World Cup, starting two, and picked up a key assist on Christen Press’ game-winner against Australia in the first group match.
