was forced to miss November's friendly against Netherlands, which was their first game since March, as she tested positive for coronavirus.

However, Horan is going to be back for this month’s training camp and two friendlies against Colombia.

Horan also opened up on how she struggled with COVID-19.

"Covid time was not a fun time, I’ll say that much," Horan said. "There was probably a week and a half there that was pretty miserable. And obviously, I wouldn't want anyone to have to go through that.

"I'm very lucky that I'm healthy and I'm young and I came out of it okay and that all the testing afterward was okay.

"It is a scary time for all of us and thinking of individuals that are a lot older or more at risk with their health. That's more of a scary thought for me."

When she was asked about her symptoms, she said: "I would say about everything except losing my sense of smell and taste."

She is now glad that she is back with her teammates and is fully recovered from the virus.

"Now I'm doing well and in camp and I feel 100 percent," she added. "But yeah, just not an experience that I enjoyed whatsoever. And I missed out on getting to play with the team. So that was a bummer.

"But it's scary knowing what other people might have to go through that could be a lot worse than me."
