    Good point @Gromit – I have found some additional information from US Soccer on this:

    • Sermanni will choose 18 players to suit up for each of the three games.
    • The majority of the USA’s European-based players will be unavailable for the Oct. 20 match at the Alamodome as they will be competing in league play in Sweden and France, as well as playing UEFA Women’s Champions League matches
    • Engen, who just helped Liverpool win the FA Women’s Super League title for the first time, will play Champions League with Tyresö on Oct. 9 and Oct. 16 when they take on Tobin Heath and Lindsey Horan’s Paris Saint-Germain of France

    Also… U.S. captain Christie Rampone is currently the second most-capped player in U.S. history and the most-capped active player in the world with 284 career games played. She is recovering from minor knee surgery and may not be available for action for the Oct. 20 match against Australia.

    There is a Champions’ League day on october 16th, concerning Heath, Press, Krieger, Engen and Klingerberg (PSG-Tyresö, no Ashlyn Harris by the way ?), and Rapinoe (Lyon-Twente) and PSG plays a D1 difficult game on 20th at Guingamp (less bad for Lyon who welcomes Rodez that day).

    That’s why I suppose it is question of joining the NT “over various periods” ?
