The U.S. Women’s National Team’s 26-player training camp roster is out for next month’s SheBelieves Cup, and four Chicago Red Stars are on the list.
Julie Ertz, Tierna Davidson, and Casey Short all made the 26-player roster, along with goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher. Midfielder Morgan Brian, who had a solid 2019, was left off the team.
Ertz is sitting at 99 caps for the national team, so she should pick up No. 100 during the tournament. Naeher is also a lock to make the final roster, but it will be interesting to see what USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski thinks of Short and Davidson. He’ll cut the final roster to 23 before the first match of the tournament.
