She suffered a knee injury on NWSL opening weekend in 2021, making her return to the U.S. just in time for the Tokyo Olympics in late July.

After the tournament, Ertz continued rehabbing her knee injury and announced the birth of her son in August 2022.


Ertz is currently an NWSL free agent, and USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski said she has been speaking with multiple clubs to find the right fit.
