Canadian international Melissa Tancredi off to Chicago of the NWSL
CHICAGO - The Chicago Red Stars of the National Women's Soccer League announced Tuesday they have acquired veteran Canadian international Melissa Tancredi, who was recently allocated to the Houston Dash. In exchange, the Red Stars sent Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod to Houston.
Tancredi, 32, from Hamilton, Ont., began her national team career in 2004 and has played in 88 games and represented Canada at two World Cups and two Olympics, including 2012, when Canada won a bronze medal at the London Olympics.
Tancredi is making a return to professional soccer after sitting out the 2013 season to complete chiropractic school. Prior to that she played in Sweden. Tancredi also played professionally for Saint Louis Athletica, and for the W-League's Vancouver Whitecaps and Atlanta.
McLeod, from St. Albert, Alta., was Chicago's starting goalkeeper for much of the 2013 season, and played in 16 games, earning four shutouts.
