With his second training camp, USWNT head coach Vlatko Andonovski has called up a roster of 24 players for an identification camp in Bradenton, Florida. According to USSF’s press release, this camp is for “deepening the player pool and positioning players for possible future call-ups.” There are no World Cup players on this roster. Of note: due to the short length of the camp (five days), Andonovski did not call up players who are currently abroad.

“It’s important to reward players who have done well for their college teams and for their professional teams in the NWSL or overseas,” Andonovski said in the press release, “And it’s also important for talented young players to get a taste of the National Team environment as breaking into the full team can often be a marathon and not a sprint.
