Washington (US), January 7: US women's soccer star Alex Morgan has recently contracted COVID-19 and will not be called into the national team's first training camp of 2021, local media reported on Wednesday.
Morgan's husband, former Galaxy midfielder Servando Carrasco, and the couple's 7-month-old daughter Charlie returned last month to California from London, where Morgan played for Tottenham Hotspur of the English women's super league.
Morgan, 31, spent the last half of 2020 with Tottenham and announced last month she was returning to the US women's soccer team Orlando Pride in 2021.
"Unfortunately, my family and I closed out 2020 learning that we had contracted COVID-19 while in California over the holidays. We are all in good spirits and recovering well. After our isolation is completed, I will follow US Soccer's return to play guidelines to ensure my body is fully recovered and I can join my teammates back on the field soon," said Morgan through social media.
The US women's national team is expected to have a training camp in January.
