Korbin Albert's social media activity draws rebuke from US team-mates

US women's captain Lindsey Horan and striker Alex Morgan have said that they were extremely sad over recent social media posts by team-mate Korbin Albert which they believe failed to uphold the integrity of the national side.

Paris St Germain midfielder Albert apologised last week after it came to light she had shared a video from a Christian sermon that spoke about how being gay and "feeling transgendered" was wrong, according to Fox Sports and other news outlets.

Albert also liked a post about former US captain Megan Rapinoe tearing her Achilles in her last professional match before retiring, the reports said. Rapinoe has been a vocal advocate for LGBT rights.

"We just want to address the disappointing situation regarding Korbin that has unfolded over this past week," Horan said while sitting alongside Morgan in a video clip on Wednesday from the team's camp.

"We've worked extremely hard to uphold the integrity of this national team through all of the generations, and we are extremely, extremely sad that this standard was not upheld."

Morgan added: "We stand by maintaining a safe and respectful space especially as allies and members of the LGBTQ+ community."

After Rapinoe had called out Albert over her posts last week, the 20-year-old said she had not meant to cause offence.

"Liking and sharing posts that are offensive, insensitive and hurtful was immature and disrespectful, which was never my intent," she posted on Instagram.

"I'm really disappointed in myself and am deeply sorry for the hurt that I have caused my team-mates, other players, fans, friends and anyone who was offended."

The US team play Japan in the semi-finals of the SheBelieves Cup in Atlanta on Saturday.
