Alex Morgan and Christen Press are back for the U.S. women's national team ashead coach Vlatko Andonovski named his 23-player roster for the 2021 SheBelieves Cup on Monday.

Press, meanwhile, was suffering from a non-Covid illness and, like Morgan, has now recovered.

Press's teammate at Manchester United, Tobin Heath, will miss out after she wasruled out for 10-12 weeks with an ankle injury.

Orlando Pride duoAli Krieger and Ashlyn Harris are also notable absentees, whileJaelin Howell, Mallory Pugh and Emily Fox missed the roster but will be in camp as training players.

The USWNT willface Canada on February 18, Brazil on February21 and Argentina on February24 in the four-team SheBelieves Cup, which will take place in Orlando. Argentina were a late addition after Japan pulled out due to coronavirus concerns.

“We will hit the ground running in Orlando with most of our roster and will get in some great work in the first part of camp before we start focusing on the games once all the European-based players arrive,” said Andonovski.

“I think we made a lot of progress on and off the field during the January camp and games, so we’ll be looking to build on that for these three matches and we want to continue to test different players in tough environments.

"Each game will present its own unique challenges and the matches are not only a step up in competition from January, but as I’ve said before, are extremely valuable as a test run for group play at the Olympics.”
