United Nations revolution16
After the last Olympics and the premature exit (in the quarters against Sweden coached by Pia Sundhage, former US coach) of the US team, Jill Ellis, national team coach, has selected the 24 players for the "WNT camp" that will start in preparation of the friendly matches against Switzerland of 19 and 23 next October.
Thirteen of the twenty-four players summoned belong to the squad who participated in the last Olympics the novelty is represented by the eleven rookies never convened in the major national all this with the stated goal of the next FIFA Women's World Cup which will be held in France in 2019.

Ellis said (USsoccer) "Right now, we are in a phase where we want to test a growing number of players to get ready for qualifying for the next World Cup," and continues "to see if these players can contribute, we have they need to be part of the national environment and train with us ".

Among the non-convened names there are names that have made great football with stars and stripes like the attacker Alex Morgan (over 70 networks in more than 118 appearances with the national team, four million followers on social networks), the playmaker Megan Rapinoe, the defenders Ali Krieger, Julie Johnston, Megan Klingenberg and eighteen-year-old Mallory Pugh (engaged with the national U-20). The goalkeeper Hope Solo discounts the disqualification of 6 months that his federation gave her for declarations after the match against Sweden in the Olympics and, given her statements, hardly fall within the national team.

Not all have taken well the exclusion is the case of Whitney Engen, defender of the Boston Breakers, who writes an open letter (photo below), published on his twitter profile, to his fans to thank them for their support and declaring all his disappointment and bitterness for the phone call that Ellis made her telling her that she is not more in the future plans of the US soccer team.
Jill Ellis is convinced that in a highly competitive environment the players are pushed to "get out of their comfort zone" always giving the best of themselves.
If he is right we will see him already the next 19 October against Switzerland.
