Jill Ellis has named 22 players to the roster for two friendlies between the U.S. Women’s National Team and Korea Republic.

Carli Lloyd returns to the roster while continuing to recover from an ankle injury, while Stanford senior Andi Sullivan returns to camp after recovering from an ACL tear suffered in late 2016.

Rose Lavelle (Boston Breakers) will be in camp,  but will not be on the game day rosters as she continues to work her way back to full fitness.

One thought on “Ellis Names Roster For Korea Republic Friendlies

  1. Why wouldn’t Ellis give Krieger her 100 caps?

    And Campbell and Smith > Did she not see Campbell play in NWSL. Franch should be there!
    Smith is fast but she just runs up & down field, gets the ball taken away and her passes don’t connect to anyone! Sonnet & Menges deserve to be there!

    Huerta is NOT a defender!
    Hopefully Sunil loses election and new president fires Ellis! She has been taken us downhill since the Olympics!
