USWNT Stars Ask for Privacy Away from Team


Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris are partners on the U.S. women’s national team, the NJ/NY Gotham FC soccer club and in their personal lives. This week, the last two subjects crossed before the game.

On Sunday, Krieger and Harris announced on Twitter that they were engaged in a “family matter” and would not be available for today’s game against the Chicago Red Stars.

“Hello everyone! We are so sad that we will not be with our team at the match against Chicago tonight. We are engaged in a family business, but we wish the team only the best, and we ask for your support and privacy during this time, thank you!” Harris and Krieger tweeted.

The Gotham Soccer Club has already announced that Krieger and Harris were absent for a valid reason until further notice.

We wish them all the best as they go about their personal affairs.
