Chicago (May 25, 2021) - The United States Women’s National Team (U.S. WNT) announced their roster for the upcoming Summer Series presented by AT&T 5G. The series includes matches against Portugal, Jamaica, and Nigeria on June 10, 13 and 16 respectively. Red Stars defender Tierna Davidson and goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher were selected as part of the 23-player training camp roster.

In 69 career appearances, Naeher has 40 career shutouts with the U.S. WNT. She has played in six matches for the team in 2021. Naeher was in net against France and Sweden during the squad’s victories over both teams in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Davidson already has 29 international appearances, one goal, and five assists at 22 years old. She has made several appearances for the squad in 2021 including an earned the start in the U.S. WNT’s match against Argentina in the finale of the SheBelieves Cup.
