Jane Campbell, Emily Sonnett named to USWNT for SheBelieves Cup

Marietta’s Emily Sonnett and Kennesaw’s Jane Campbell were two of the 23 players called to the U.S. women’s national team for its coming matches in the SheBelieves Cup, which will start April 6 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Interim manager Twila Kilgore named the roster Tuesday.

The U.S., ranked No. 4 by FIFA, are scheduled to play No. 7 Japan at 12:30 p.m. April 6. No. 10 Brazil will play No. 9 Canada at 3:30 p.m. that day. The finals will be held in Columbus, Ohio, on April 9. The U.S. is the defending champion.

“This is an evolving team that is eager to get back together and continue progressing,” Kilgore said in a statement from the United State Soccer Federation. “The W Gold Cup provided a lot of players with needed experiences and presented us with different adversities we had to overcome together. We will take all these experiences with us into SheBelieves and beyond.”

Sonnett, a midfielder, plays for Gotham FC in the NWSL. Campbell, a goalkeeper, plays for Houston in the NWSL.

More than 37,000 tickets have been sold for the tournament matches at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The total is the third most for a U.S. women’s match that’s not included in the the World Cup or Olympics.
