Over the past three days, a trio of Thorns players have been called up to represent the U.S. Women’s National Team for the January training camp taking place in Austin, Texas.
On Wednesday, the Thorns twitter announced that veteran midfielder Lindsey Horan and forward Sophia Smith were named to the 25-player roster to take part in the USWNT training camp that will span from Jan. 19-28.
The following day, the Thorns added that forward Morgan Weaver would also be joining her two teammates.
The three players bring various levels of experience within the USWNT. Horan leads the three with 108 caps. Smith has made 10 appearances and Weaver has played for country twice.
While there won’t be any friendlies played during this training camp, it’s a great sign to see three players get the recognition that they deserve.
The USWNT will make their 2022 debut in the SheBelieves Cup, facing off against the Czech Republic, New Zealand and Iceland. The SheBelieves Cup will start on Feb. 17.
