The USWNT announced Thursday the roster for the upcoming SheBelieves Cup, taking place Feb. 17-23.

The 23-player roster leans heavily into the USWNT’s youth, with players like Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Julie Ertz left off.

“All these players are very good players. We all know that,” Andonovski said of his decision to leave veterans off the roster. “They’ve done so much for this team, and they’ve won everything possible.

“But right now in these camps, I felt like I want to give a chance to players like Sophie Smith and Mal Pugh and Catarina Macario. Players that have earned their sports on the national team, or their spots back on the national team.”

Citing a desire to give those young players more minutes to better evaluate their game, Andonovski said that final decisions for upcoming camps and qualifiers won’t solely be made off of the SheBelieves Cup.

“In any of these camps, like SheBelieves for example, we call in any of the senior players then we’re not going to be able to see the younger ones, or dial in as deep as we want with the younger ones,” he said.

“Now, again, not that it doesn’t mean these players haven’t done well in the past,” he continued. “They’re not just going to come back in the next game because they’ve done well a year ago or two years ago. So I mean, there’s a reason why Mia Hamm is not in camp still. We’re not calling Julie Foudy into camp, right? The same goes here. They need to perform. They need to play in their markets. They need to play well in their markets, and show that they can still contribute and be valuable for the national team.”

Catarina Macario and Becky Sauerbrunn are the only players on the roster who did not attend the team’s January training camp.

Trinity Rodman has been named as a training player during the lead-up to the tournament. When asked why she wasn’t included on the full roster, Andonovski said that they want to ease Rodman into being a member of the team.

“She did well in camp,” he said. “Her mindset fits well in it. She’s really doing good in the league, but the national team is a completely different animal. We want to give her a chance to slowly adjust to the system.”

The SheBelieves Cup will kick off on Thursday, Feb. 17 in California with the USWNT taking on the Czech Republic at 11 p.m. ET.

Members of the 2015 and 2019 United States women’s national team World Cup championship teams will receive commemorative rings, U.S. Soccer announced Friday.

The rings, produced by Charles & Colvard, will be given to 11 players from the 2015 team, 11 from the 2019 team and 12 who were on both teams. A total of 34 players will receive rings.

“The achievements of this group of players will go down in history and provided our country some of the most memorable sporting moments of the last decade,” said U.S. Soccer President Cindy Parlow in a release. “We hope these rings will forever stoke the memories of some of the best times in their soccer careers and lives as athletes.”

Members from the 1991 and 1999 teams have also received rings in the past.

Charles & Colvard, a jewelry company based in North Carolina, has used player feedback in the design process and will use gemstones that are made – not mined – with limited environmental and ethical impact. U.S. Soccer said Charles & Colvard’s commitment to sustainability and ethics was a deciding factor in selecting the company to make the rings.

“It is an honor to create championship rings that recognize and celebrate the tremendous accomplishments of the 2015 and 2019 U.S. Women’s National Teams,” said Don O’Connell, President and CEO of Charles & Colvard. “These rings symbolize the incredible achievements of two historic teams, and it was important to us that the brilliance and quality of the gemstones and finished products were reflective of the individuals receiving them. We are proud to present these commemoration pieces to the players, coaches and staff to acknowledge their crowning achievements in 2015 and 2019.”

The 2015 ring is oval-shaped and set in 10K white gold. The top features the USSF crest with three stars above the shield to commemorate the USWNT’s three Women’s World Cup wins (1991, 1999 and 2015). The left panel will showcase a soccer ball, surrounded by 34 pavé set Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds, and the right panel will feature the last name of the ring’s recipient as well as the player’s jersey number and 42 more Caydia Lab Grown Diamonds.

The center band around the ring commemorates the host country (Canada), the opponent (Japan), venue (BC Place), date (July 5, 2015) and final score (5-2).

The 2019 ring is also set in 10K white gold with a 10K yellow gold rim surrounding the top, which features a soccer ball containing six diamonds and surrounded by 42 Forever One Moissanite gemstones. The four diamonds on the top signal each of the USWNT’s four World Cup wins.

The left panel of the ring showcases the USSF crest, while the right panel is personalized for each player. Two center bands run around the ring showcasing the host country, opponent, venue, date and final score of the 2019 championship game.

On each ring, the finger rest is engraved with the numbers 1-23 in a circle, which U.S. Soccer says is meant to recognize each of the team’s 23 players “and their commitment to team unity.”
