The Orlando Pride broke an NWSL attendance record when it drew 23,403 fans for its 3-1 win over the Houston Dynamo, but the game was marred by a knee injury to U.S. national team co-captain Carli
Lloyd. She will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the injury.
The injury came in the fifth minute of the game, and Lloyd was not so seriously injured that she had to leave the game immediately. She ran up to block Orlando
defender Laura Alleway's clearance but landed awkwardly on her left foot as she blocked the ball with her right foot and immediately fell to the turf in pain.
But after staying in
the game for about a minute, she left to receive treatment and was subbed out in the 12th minute.
