[USA UNDER-23 WOMEN] Julie Johnston and Kristie Mewis, who made their debuts for the U.S. national team in Saturday's 4-1 win over Scotland, will be joining the U.S. under-23 national team for its trip to La Manga, Spain, Feb. 22-March 5 and games against under-23 teams from Norway, England and Sweden.

Forward Zakiya Bywaters, the first pick in the NWSL College Draft, will be coming off almost two weeks of training with the national team.

Bywaters and Mewis are among six players in U.S. head coach Randy Waldrum's 20-player roster who were taken in the recent NWSL draft. Two foreign-based players will join the squad: former Stanford defender Camille Levin, who is playing in Sweden, and former Florida State defender Toni Pressley, who is playing in Russia.

The roster also features eight players from the U.S. team that won the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan, including Johnston, who captained the side and won the Bronze Ball as the third-best player in the tournament.

U.S. U-23 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Jami Kranich (Villanova), Abby Smith (Texas)
DEFENDERS (8): Natasha Anasi (Duke); Julie Johnston (Santa Clara), Kassey Kallman (Florida State), Camille Levin (Gothenburg FC/SWE), Lindsi Lisonbee (Sky Blue FC), Toni Pressley (Ryazan VDV/RUS), Casey Short (Boston Breakers), Courtney Verloo (Stanford)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Morgan Brian (Virginia), Zakiya Bywaters (Chicago Red Stars), Vanessa DiBernardo (Illinois), Sarah Killion (UCLA), Kristie Mewis (FC Kansas City), Samantha Mewis (UCLA)
FORWARDS (4): Morgan Marlborough (Santa Clara), Tiffany McCarty (Washington Spirit), Stephanie Ochs (Washington Spirit), Havana Solaun (Florida)
