U.S. women bring in 26 players for pre-SheBelieves Cup camp

U.S. national team head coach Vlatko Andonovski named 26 players -- all from the NWSL -- who will attend a training camp in Orlando to prepare for the 2020 SheBelieves Cup, which begins March 5 against England in Orlando.

March 5 in Orlando, Florida
Spain vs. Japan, 4:15 p.m. ET (ESPN3)
USA vs. England, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN2, TUDN)

Andonovski named all 20 players from the U.S. squad that swept all five games with shutout wins in the recent Concacaf Women's Olympic Qualifying tournament.

The six other call-ups:

-- Defenders Margaret Purce and Casey Short and forward Mallory Pugh, who all trained with the USA before the start of Olympic qualifying.

-- Goalkeeper Jane Campbell and defender Tierna Davidson, who attended the USA's opening camp of the year in Tampa.

-- Midfielder Jordan DiBiasi, a second-year midfielder with the Washington Spirit for whom this is her first senior national team call-up.

Pugh and Davidson were among five 2019 Women's World Cup champions who did not take part in Olympic qualifying. Forward Alex Morgan is on maternity leave while midfielders Allie Long and Morgan Brian were not called into the pre-SheBelieves Cup camp.

Andonovski will name 23 players to the SheBelieves Cup roster. He will take 18 players to the Tokyo Olympics in July.
