U.S. Soccer cancels USWNT Victory Tour match in Hawaii; Megan Rapinoe tears ACL

Coach Jill Ellis, and players like Alex Morgan and Carli Lloyd complained about the horrible condition of the field yesterday after Megan Rapinoe's ACL tear during a practice session.

The injury reignited the anger felt by U.S. players, who were among an international coalition that had threatened to sue FIFA over the use of turf fields in the 2015 Women's World Cup.

"It happened very fast. It was certainly non-contact. There were plates just off the field and she came off the field on the play. Did she catch one of those? I don't know,'' U.S. coach Jill Ellis said about watching Rapinoe go down.


“I think the training grounds that we were given and the playing surface of the stadium were horrible,” Morgan told Fox Sports in Honolulu. “I think it’s hard because no one’s really going to protect us but ourselves. So we’re put in a very hard position because obviously we want to play in front of these fans and we want to train before the game but injuries happen when you don’t protect yourself and when you’re not protected from those higher up from you.”
