The final 18-player Olympic Team roster has been announced! These games will feature the full U.S. Olympic Women’s Soccer Team roster just days before leaving for Japan to participate in the delayed Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
“These are games to work on the final details, to once again give our players a chance to play with their position groups and areas on the field and to make sure our fitness is in the right place heading into our pre-Olympic training camp,” said U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Vlatko Andonovski. “Mexico is a team that has larger ambitions as it prepares for the run-up to the 2023 Women’s World Cup so we know they will give us two tough tests, which is what we need to continue to sharpen our team before we leave for Japan.”
The pair of Olympic Send-Off matches will be played at the same venue for the first time to enable a more efficient execution of U.S. Soccer’s COVID-19 protocols. Once the USA and Mexico arrive in Connecticut, all the players and staff will operate inside highly controlled environments for the duration of the Send-Off Series. Trainings and the matches will fall under the comprehensive U.S. Soccer Return to Play Protocols and Guidelines and in accordance with the Concacaf Return to Play Protocols. Everyone entering the controlled environment will be tested for COVID-19 before traveling, upon arrival and periodically thereafter. The teams will not begin full team training until the results of all arrival tests are confirmed.
