She will be able to make her debut this month as unlike in Europe, football leagues in the USA continue on in the summer and take a break in the months off November and December. Orlando Pride currently find themselves in 8th place out of 12 teams. They currently only have 3 wins in the 12 games that they have played.
Haley will hope to turn the Pride’s season around with the help of Brazilian football legend Marta, who is often regarded as the greatest female footballer of all time.
