Boxx will miss game vs. Colombia

BY foxsports • July 27, 2012

U.S. midfielder Shannon Boxx has been ruled out for Saturday's Olympic soccer game against Colombia because of a hamstring injury.

She was hurt in the first half of Wednesday's 4-2 win over France.

Coach Pia Sundhage said Friday that veteran Carli Lloyd will start in Boxx's spot. Lloyd recently lost her starting job, but she came off the bench after Boxx was injured to score the winning goal against the French.

Sundhage said Boxx hopes to return later in the tournament.
