By Sean McCaffery, March 24, 2021

HC Andononvski tabbed the 23 for the travel list as they face Sweden and France in April. The 10th at Friends Arena at 1 p.m. ET will have them face Sweden on FOX, the 13th, France at Stade Oceane  from 3 p.m. ET on ESPN2. 

Most came from he NWSL with 17 of them and the remaining 6 are in Europe playing their club ball. Only  a pair were not on the SheBelieves Roster.There will be no fans at either game and 18 player game rosters.

Vlatko stated "I give our larger pool of players credit for always making selections difficult. We still have much evaluation to do from trainings, international matches, NWSL matches and overseas club matches before selecting the Olympic Team. The exciting thing is that I know our players have the talent and mentality to meet those adversities with a great energy and overcome them."

GK: Campbell, Murphy, Naeher

DEF: Cook, Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn of Portland and RVC, O'Hara, Purce of Sky Blue, Sauerbrunn, Sonnett

MID: Ertz, Horan, Lavelle, Macario, Mewis, Mewis

FWD: Lloyd SBFC, Morgan, Press, Rapinoe, Smith, Williams

With time in either game, Carli Lloyd will hit the historic 300 cap mark only 3 others are ahead of her, Kristine Lilly with 354 and Christie Pearce Rampone and her 311 is in danger.

There will be a strict bubble of course in both nations at the team hotels. the team has an exemption from quarantine as are pro sports. All who will travel must test negative ahead of time and then every 2 days, the team will not do full team training before all arrival results are known.
