Nike International Friendlies: U.S. U-20 women call in 34 players

U.S. head coach Mark Carr has called in 34 players who will be split into two squads for the 2019 Nike International Friendlies against Brazil and France at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch, Fla.

All five tournament games, beginning on Monday, will be streamed live on U.S. Soccer's platforms. The tournament will be held in conjunction with the Allstate U.S. Soccer Development Academy Winter Cup, running from Dec. 8-14 at the Premier Sports Campus.

On the horizon for the USA will be February’s Concacaf Women’s U-20 Championship to be held in the Dominican Republic. The tournament will send three countries to the 2020 U-20 Women’s World Cup.

Carr, who will coach all four games for the two U.S. squads, has called in 15 players born in 2000, eight born in 2001 and eight born in 2002.

Four players born in 2000 will be with the senior national team for an ID camp next week: North Carolina's Maycee Bell and Brianna Pinto and Stanford's Naomi Girma and Sophia Smith.

Along with those four, two U-20 players will be at this weekend's Women's College Cup: UNC's Julia Dorsey and Isabel Cox.
