Leesburg, VA (09/09/21) – U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Vlatko Andonovski has named Spirit midfielder Andi Sullivan and defenders Kelley O’Hara and Emily Sonnett to the roster for two September friendlies. The roster is made up of the team from the Tokyo Olympics and due to injuries, Sullivan was added. 

The USWNT will take on Paraguay on Thursday, Sept. 16 in Cleveland, Ohio (7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2) and then again on Tuesday, Sept. 21 in Cincinnati, OH (7:30 p.m. ET on FS1 & TUDN).

O’Hara is coming off a successful Olympics where she featured in five of the six matches en route to her second Olympic medal. For the Spirit in 2021, O’Hara has featured in eight games, starting six of those and totaling 562 minutes.

In her first Olympics, Sonnett featured in two matches at the Tokyo Olympics including in the bronze medal match. Since joining the Spirit in the off-season, Sonnett has played in nine games, starting eight of those for 723 total minutes.

Sullivan is in the midst of one of the best years of her young career. She was named to the NWSL Team of the Month for July and came in second in Player of the Month voting behind teammate Ashley Hatch. Sullivan has played in 15 matches for the Spirit this season and racked up 1,310 minutes and two assists during that time. This is her first call up to the national team since the Summer Series in late May.
