Roster for the SheBelieves Cup 2022
On February 2, the Czech Republic was the first to declare its roster for the event. Andrea Staskova, a 21-year-old Juventus striker who has made a significant impression in Italy, was one of the team’s most fascinating names.
On February 3, the USWNT unveiled its roster, which was notable for the absence of Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan, with Andonovski focusing on some of the team’s younger and peripheral players. Due to a back injury, defender Abby Dahlkemper was forced to withdraw from the squad, allowing young sensation Trinity Rodman to make her debut.
Iceland’s roster was revealed on February 4th, and it included players from six different leagues throughout the world. Gunnhildur Yrsa Jonsdottir, a 33-year-old midfielder presently playing for the NWSL’s Orlando Pride, was one of the most well-known names in the United States.
On February 7, New Zealand announced its final roster, which included the return of defender Rebekah Stott. Stott, a hugely beloved and important player of her national squad, was diagnosed with stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma early last year and has already completed effective treatment, paving the way for her miraculous recall.
