Jackie Acevedo Leaves Thorns to Join Mexico for World Cup Preparations

Stacey Neve - Stumptown Footy

Acevedo appeared in two matches this season.

Though not officially announced yet by the Thorns, forward Jackie Acevedo revealed on Twitter that she was heading back to Mexico to prepare for World Cup qualifying later this year.

Acevedo, 27, was assigned to the Thorns during the off-season as one of 8 allocated by the Mexican Football Federation and appeared in two early-season matches for the Thorns, logging 15 total minutes, but has been an unused substitute since, with amateur call up Hanna Terry selected over her during the Thorns 2-0 victory over the Washington Spirit on June 15.

Moving Acevedo to inactive status, if that is indeed what the have Thorns decide to do (a previously undisclosed option), allows them to keep all players currently in their roster, as midfielder Tobin Heath returned to the Thorns this week and played 85 minutes in the Thorns 2-2 draw with the Red Stars on Friday.

The 2014 CONCACAF Women's World Championship will take place from October 16-26, in the United States.  Mexico and the United States receive automatic berths to this tournament as members of the North American Football Union, while Canada is an automatic qualifier to the World Cup as the host nation.
