Chalupny, 31, had to leave the U.S. team in 2009 because of repeated concussions. Her struggle back, beginning last year, was heroic. But her contribution since rejoining the U.S. team was limited.
A midfielder-turned-defender, she played in one game of this year’s World Cup, coming off the bench for the final 10 minutes against Colombia.
In all, she’s appeared in nine games in 2015, starting three. She has two goals.
On May 10, in a match against Ireland, she became the 32nd U.S. player to earn 100 caps.
She is to be honored tonight (Aug. 19) when the U.S. women play Costa Rica in Chattanooga, Tenn.
