USWNT: Sermanni Names 18-Player Roster for Saturday

U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni has named the 18 players to suit up for Saturdays match against Scotland. This is Sermanni’s first roster as head coach of the United States.

Notes (as per ussoccer):

  • Hope Solo was left off the list due to a minor calf strain.
  • Megan Rapinoe and Rachel Buehler arrived late to training camp and were only able to attend one training session so they will not be suiting up.
  • Julie Johnston, Christen Press, and Kristie Mewis will all have the opportunity to earn their first caps at the senior level tomorrow.
  • This is Ali Krieger’s first roster appearance since her ACL and MCL tear in January of 2012.

Tomorrow’s match will be streamed live on at 5pm EST.
