Megan Rapinoe ruled out of USWNT friendlies against Chile

Megan Rapinoe, one of only two players who has started every game for the USA in 2018, has been ruled out of the women's international friendly matches against Chile because of a rib injury suffered in last Tuesday's Seattle Reign match against the Houston Dash.

Rapinoe has four goals and a team-high nine assists in 2018 for the U.S. women, who are 9-0-2. She will still join the U.S. team in camp for further evaluation of the injury. The NWSL semifinals will be played Sept. 15-16 and Women's World Cup qualifying will begin on Oct. 4.

Utah Royals forward Amy Rodriguez (131 caps and 30 goals) has been added to the training camp roster. The USA plays Chile on Friday at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. and four days later at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif.
