USWNT captain and Lyon midfielder Lindsey Horan says that yesterday’s Women’s Champions League final was a “sign of where women’s football is going.”

Horan, 30, stated her side’s 2-0 defeat to Barcelona at the San Memes stadium. Goals from Aitana Bonmati and Alexia Putellas secured Barcelona’s second consecutive Champions League victory.

However, despite the defeat, Horan believes that the game being played in front of a record crowd of 50,827 people was a step in the right direction for the women’s game.

She said: “Well, I hope everyone in the world is watching today. I think you see the atmosphere and yes, again, I know a lot of it is Barca fans.

“You see the atmosphere, you see a sellout crowd. I’m hoping the viewership is amazing. I think again, it’s just a sign of where women’s football is going. We have to be proud of that in general.

“I hope in a positive light, it was an entertaining game fo the fans. We have to go back, work hard and make sure that we stay on top.”
