Tarpley to miss World Cup

Former Red Stars MF Lindsay Tarpley
Former Chicago Red Stars midfielder Lindsay Tarpley tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee with 15 minutes remaining in the U.S. Women's National Team's 2-0 victory over Japan on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.

U.S. Soccer announced Sunday that the injury will sideline Tarpley for six to eight months, preventing her from playing in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup. Tarpley tore the ACL in the same knee at the end of the 2009 WPS season when she was with the Red Stars.
