USWNT head coach Jill Ellis Names 22 Players to Roster for April Friendlies Against Mexico

NT Faces El Tricolor Femenil on April 5 in Jacksonville and April 8 in Houston

USA Women’s National Team head coach Jill Ellis has named 22 players to the preliminary roster for two friendly matches against Mexico.

The games will take place on Thursday, April 5 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. (7 p.m. ET; FS1 & UDN) and on Sunday, April 8, at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston (12:30 p.m. CT; FOX). Ellis will name 18 players to suit up for each of the matches.

The two games will be a preview of a possible meeting in the Concacaf Women’s World Cup qualifying tournament that will be held this coming fall. Both teams are in preparations for that competition, which will send three countries to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France and a fourth into a two-game playoff with the third-place team from South America.

    UPDATE:
    Defender Hailie Mace, a rising senior at UCLA, has replaced Chicago Red Stars defender Casey Short on the 22-player U.S. Women’s National Team roster for the upcoming friendlies against Mexico.

    Short injured her ankle against France in the USA’s second game of the 2018 SheBelieve Cup. She had been progressing well while training with the Chicago Red Stars during the latter part of pre-season, but suffered a minor setback and thus is not yet ready for international play.
