CHICAGO – Florida State midfielder and U.S. youth national teams veteran Jaelin Howell has replaced University of North Carolina defender Emily Fox on the U.S. women’s national team identification camp roster, it was announced Wednesday.
The 24-player training camp will take place in Bradenton, Fla. Dec. 9-14.
Fox, who has three USWNT caps, suffered a knee injury in the University of North Carolina’s NCAA Division I quarterfinal playoff victory over USC Nov. 29.
Howell trained with the USWNT in 2017 when she was 17. She played for the USA at both the 2016 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan and the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.
She started all 23 games she played for the Seminoles this season and recorded five goals with four assists from her defensive midfield position. In 2018, she played in 26 matches as a freshman with 24 starts while helping the Seminoles win the NCAA championship.
