Zerboni earns first call-up to USWNT for Sunday's game against South Korea

At the age of 30, McCall Zerboni earned her first ever call-up to the U.S. women's national team. She has been brought in for Sunday's match against South Korea in Cary, North Carolina.

She plays alongside U.S. midfielder and fellow UCLA product Sam Mewis for the NWSL's North Carolina Courage, the 2017 Shield winner.

Zerboni has played in all eight seasons of the WPS and NWSL with stops at the Los Angeles Sol, Atlanta Beat, Western New York Flash, Portland Thorns and Boston Breakers in addition to North Carolina.

Two players who started for the USA's 3-1 win over South Korea on Thursday didn't travel to Cary: Mallory Push, which suffered a hamstring injury, and Andi Sullivan, who returned to Stanford University, which plays at Oregon State on Sunday.
