Women Football: Sydney Leroux plays three months after giving birth

Sydney Leroux-Dwyer
World Cup winner Sydney Leroux was back in action for Orlando Pride on Sunday - just three months and a day after giving birth.

The Orlando Pride striker was an 88th-minute substitute in her side's 1-1 draw with Sky Blue FC in New Jersey.

Leroux, who has 77 caps for the USA, gave birth to daughter Roux on 28 June and was back training with her club on 27 July.

It was her first match since September 2018, although she had been training with her team as late as March this year when she was five-and-a-half-months pregnant.

Leroux tweeted,"It's been a long road but I did it". She was a member of the USA's World Cup-winning squad in 2015 and an Olympic gold medallist at London 2012.

She is married to US men's international Dom Dwyer. The couple also have a three-year-old son, Cassius.
