USWNT calls up 25 players to January training camp

U.S. women’s national team head coach Vlatko Andonovski has called up 25 players to the first training camp of the year, including Washington Spirit forward Trinity Rodman.

Rodman, who earned the NWSL’s 2021 Rookie of the Year award, is accepting a call-up for the first time. She joins Spirit goalkeeper Aubrey Kingsbury and San Diego Wave defender Naomi Girma as uncapped players named to the roster. 

The camp will run from January 19-28. No friendlies are currently scheduled in in conjunction with the gathering, but instead Andonovski is likely to be analyzing players ahead of the SheBelieves Cup in February. 

“Without any matches that we need to taper for, we can get in some more intense trainings and full-field scrimmages, which is great as we need to give this group as many chances as possible to play together in a national team environment,” Andonovski said.

“We understand that some of the players are coming off a break, so we’ll keep that in mind as we hit the ground running in 2022 for what will be a very important year for these players and our team.”
