NJ/NY Gotham FC midfielder Kristie Mewis and forward Margaret “Midge” Purce Thursday were named as part of the 23-player U.S. women’s national team roster for the SheBelieves Cup.
The tournament features the USA, Czech Republic, New Zealand and Iceland. The six matches will be played over three doubleheader events, taking place on Feb. 17 and 20 at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif. and Feb. 23 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.
This isn’t the first time either player will feature for head coach Vlatko Andonovski’s squad.
