[ALGARVE CUP] Already without Hope Solo, who is sidelined with a wrist injury, the U.S. women's national team lost goalie Jill Loyden, who suffered a broken bone in her left hand during training Thursday in Portugal. Loyden, who started the opening 3-0 win over Iceland at the Algarve Cup, is slated to play for Sky Blue FC in the new NWSL.

Loyden, who will leave Portugal on Friday to consult with a hand specialist to determine if she will need surgery, also broke a bone in her left hand two years ago in training.

Her absence will leave the USA with only Nicole Barnhart and Ashlyn Harris as options in goal for the rest of the Algarve Cup. The USA plays China on Friday (TV: pay-per-view, 9 am ET).

The only other goalie Sky Blue FC has selected in one of the player mechanisms to fill out rosters for the NWSL launch is Englishwoman Ashley Baker, who played at the University of Georgia.
