USWNT and Thorns star Horan admits NWSL season has been 'mentally exhausting'

Portland Thorns midfielder Lindsey Horan has admitted it's been "mentallyexhausting" dealing with the uncertainty surrounding the 2020 NWSL season.

"To be fair it’s been pretty hard," the USWNTmidfieldersaid of the 2020 season."For most players and for me in general it’s been mentally exhausting."

After months of planning, theNWSLreturned in late June with the Challenge Cup, which featured eight of the league's nine teams in a bubbleenvironmentin Utah.

Horansaid the Challenge Cup was such an anomaly that it was hard to come to terms with what it meant, but her sideeventuallyembraced the competition as they advanced to the semifinals.

"It's hard towrap your mind around what the Challenge Cup was and I think once we did that it was incredible and I think everyone was bought in," the 26-year-oldsaid.

"The tournament setting and being in that bubble, it’s exciting and you’re playing for a trophy and all these things and I think everyone went into it and was absolutely awesome, especially with the Thorns."

More uncertainly followed the Challenge Cup, with no further games scheduled when the tournament ended in July. Eventually, the league agreed on a four-game return in September and October that it called the Fall Series.

The Fall Series, though, is a series of friendlies and has involved depleted teams after a host of players either opted out of the games or moved abroad on short-term deals. Horan admits that those factors have made staying motivated a challenge.

"Coming back into this FallSeries and these four games that are different than what we just had with the Challenge Cup, mentally it was really hard for me to wrap my mind around it again and I had a lot of questions in my head," Horansaid.

"We’re soccer players, this is our job, this is our passion, we want to play and that’s how Iwent into it but Ican’t lie and say it wasn’t difficult to just try to get yourself motivated for these games again.
