Horan is currently resting at home, he is fine and he is following the relevant quarantine protocols. Your positive test came during the U. . S.. . Test procedure before the trip of football. She was replaced on the squad by midfielder Jaelin Howell. Howell, 21, who is in the process of helping the state of Florida win the 2020 ACC Women’s World Cup, where she scored twice, attended the October US training camp in her home state of Colorado.

POST-99ERS: Both Howell and her former youth club teammate Sophia Smith are capless. Either or both could be the first players born after the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup to receive a full national team cap. Howell has made 29 caps for the U20 and scored two goals, while Smith has 23 goals in 30 games for the U20. Only Sydney Leroux (29) and Lindsey Horan (24) scored more goals in the U20 for the USA.

If Smith plays against the Netherlands, she will be the first player for the US born in the Aughts (2000s) to earn a Senior Team Cap.

RUN FOR OLYMPIC ROSTER RAMPS BACK UP: When Vlatko Andonovski was hired as head coach for the USWNT at the end of October 2019, he thought he had a quick try to prepare the team for the 2020 Olympic Games. When the global pandemic hit and the Olympics were postponed to 2021, his plans were changed to say the least, and without having a game or practice session for more than seven months, he and his coaching staff attended NWSL Challenge Cup games and fall series- Play part and more recently games from Europe to watch the players. Watching these games, combined with countless video meetings and countless games and video clips, helped the coaching staff prepare for the difficult task of choosing the Olympic team. That process was eventually resumed on the field at the Colorado training camp in October. Now a game against one of the best teams in the world will give him and his staff even more valuable information as they resume the process of choosing an Olympic squad with only 16 outfield players and two goalkeepers, a Herculean task for any national coach but more with a U. . S.. . Pool of players with enviable depth in almost every position. The Olympic women’s soccer tournament will take place from 21. July to 21st. August. 6, 2021.

WELCOME BACK ALEX: Forward Alex Morgan lets you return to U.. S.. . Camp for the first time since the US Post-World Cup Victory Tour but has not played in a match for the US since the 2019 Women’s World Cup Final, preparing the scenario she is in The last game before giving birth their first child, a daughter Charlie on 7. May, and her first game as a mother could be against the Netherlands. It would be her first cap under Vlatko Andonovski. Morgan returned to the field for the first time since he was born in a 20-minute replacement appearance for Tottenham Hotspur in November. 8, played 45 minutes on their first start on Nov.. . 14, playing 45 minutes off the bench in a Continental Cup game on Nov.. . 18th. Morgan is one of the most prolific strikers in USWNT history. He has 107 career goals and with another will overtake the great Michelle Akers for sole ownership of the fourth all-time in U.. S.. . history. If she plays she’ll be 12th. Be the player who appears for the U.. S.. . Women’s national team after becoming a mother.

WHAT’S THE PLURAL OF MEWIS ?: Since both Kristie (29 years) and Samantha Mewis (28) have been added to the roster, this is the first time since the Algarve Cup 2014 that sisters have been on a USWNT roster. Both Mewis sisters were represented in it. Kristie has 15 caps and one goal (memorably in 2013 in her home state of Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium against the Republic of Korea) but has not played for the USWNT in that Algarve Cup since March 2014. The Mewis sisters are only the second pair of sisters to play for the U.. S.. . Women’s national team based on the twins Lorrie and Ronnie Fair, who were on the team together in the late 1990s. The Mewis sisters played together in two games, both at the 2014 Algarve Cup. They came on Jan.. March 2014 in their first game together against Sweden, which was Sam’s first international match, and then began on 10. March 2014 their only game together against. Denmark. If they play together in another game, they will outperform Lori and Ronnie Fair for most games played together as sisters. Lorrie and Ronnie played together twice in 1997.

HOLD THE CAT ATTACK ON NOW: Catarina Macario, the double reigning MAC Hermann Trophy winner for best college football player at Stanford University, is one of two non-pros on the roster. As the process that will allow Macario to represent the US in a full international game is not yet complete, it will not be on the matchday list, meaning Andonovski will pick his 18 out of the other 22 players in training camp. She recently received U. S.. . Citizenship and received their U. . S.. . Pass, and now she’s waiting for FIFA approval, but the U. . S.. . The coaching team felt the trip to the Netherlands and the training environment were important enough for her growth to include her on the 23-player roster. Brazilian-born Macario, who played her youth soccer in San Diego, has scored 63 goals with 47 assists for Stanford in 68 college games to date. She had a remarkable 32 goals and 23 assists in 2019 to help Stanford earn the NCAA title. At Stanford, along with the rest of the Pac-12 conference and many national conferences, the fall 2020 season has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
