Mallory Swanson is the world's top scorer for this year. The No. 1 ranked U.S. Women's Soccer team suffered an apparent serious injury to their left knee during a friendly match against Ireland on Sunday. This setback comes just three months before the Women's World Cup this summer.
It would be a huge blow for the U.S. if Swanson were to miss the World Cup. The U.S. is aiming to win a third consecutive World Cup in Australia and New Zealand this summer. Swanson, 24, has had a scorching scoring streak this year. She leads the U.S. in goals with seven in five matches. She was tied for fourth in the history of the U.S. team with a six-game streak.
