'It's about being ready for June 11' - USWNT right back O'Hara not yet fully fit after ankle setback

The defender has made the U.S. World Cup squad, but will likely be brought along slowly in the team's send-off series
U.S. women’s national team defender Kelley O’Hara admitted she is not yet at 100 percent in her ongoing recovery from an ankle injury, saying her main focus is being ready for the World Cup.
O’Hara has been named to the team’s roster for the tournament in France, but the USWNT’s presumed starting right back is still fighting her way back to full fitness after a difficult recovery from an operation.
The 30-year-old underwent ankle surgery back in October and did not play for the U.S. again until February. After a setback, O’Hara missed both of the USWNT’s April friendlies, raising concerns about her status for the World Cup, which begins for the U.S. on June 11 against Thailand.
