Hello! Hope you had a good Valentine’s Day and/or Ash Wednesday. In the soccer world things were pretty busy with a USWNT roster announced and some Washington Spirit news as well. Let’s get started!
USWNT SheBelieves Cup preliminary roster includes five Washington Spirit players - Black And Red United
After a season of not really having any Washington Spirit players on USWNT rosters...yesterday there were five. The closest match to D.C. is on March 4th at Red Bull Arena against France.
Becky Sauerbrunn isn’t on the roster, but had some fun anyway:
