CHICAGO – The Chicago Red Star announced today that the club has signed U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Morgan Brian for the remainder of the 2018 National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season.
Brian, who was drafted by the Houston Dash in 2015, appeared in 33 games (32 starts) during her three seasons in Houston. The U.S. international played in 10 games (10 starts) during the 2015 campaign, tallying three assists.
In August 2017, the Red Stars acquired Brian via a trade with Dash and despite battling injuries for most of the year, she appeared in two games, starting one, for a total of 85 minutes.
In the offseason, Brian headed abroad signing a contract with French powerhouse, Olympique Lyonnais. She appeared in four matches for Lyon, playing all 90 minutes in a 5-0 shutout win against Soyaux and a 4-0 shutout victory against Albi, and scoring one goal in a 10-1 victory against Lille.
The Chicago Red Stars return to action against the Utah Royals on Saturday, June 23 at Toyota Park. The match will be broadcast live on go90 at 7:00 p.m. CT.
