Osborne (ACL) won't play in Olympics


CARSON, Calif---U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Leslie Osborne tore the anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee during training at The Home Depot Center May 22 and is out of running for a spot on the Olympic Team.

Osborne, who has played 60 times for the U.S., was a probable candidate for the Americans' 18-player roster for the Beijing Summer Games.

She scored her third career international goal in a 6-0 victory over Canada May 10. Osborne, who turned 25 May 27, will have knee surgery within the week and will also undergo reconstructive ankle surgery about a month later to take care of some lingering issues.

Osborne, who played in the Women's World Cup in 2007, will have about an 8-10 month period of rehabilitation.
