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.
