A trio of American soccer stars were in London over the weekend to watch the Vikings face the Saints in an NFL game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
USWNT star midfielder Lindsey Horan was joined by USMNT goalkeeper Matt Turner and defender Chris Richards alongside the cast of Apple’s popular Ted Lasso show.
Horan’s French club team, Lyon, is just a two-hour flight from London, and she’s in town this week for the USWNT’s upcoming friendly against England at Wembley Stadium.
Turner and Richards didn’t have to travel far for the game as they play for London-based clubs Arsenal and Crystal Palace, respectively.
Christian Pulisic, who plays for nearby Chelsea, attended a game featuring his Jets in London last year. The Jets won’t to return to England this year, but the NFL has two more London games on deck later this season.
Horan played 19 minutes off the bench in Lyon’s 2-0 win over Rodez Aveyron on Saturday. Turner is coming off an impressive performance with the USMNT and he’s expected to play in cup games with Arsenal this fall. Richards is still working his way back into Crystal Palace’s squad after leaving USMNT camp with a “minor injury” last month.
The Vikings defeated the Saints 28-25 on Sunday.
We’re patiently awaiting Season 3 like the rest of you… 🤩
