Harris and Morgan Called to USWNT to Face Portugal & Scotland
U.S. Women's National Team head coach Jill Ellis has named a 24-player roster for a two-game European tour that will see the USA travel to face Portugal in Lisbon on Nov. 8 (1 p.m. ET on ESPN2) and Scotland in Paisley on Nov. 13 (2 p.m. ET on FS1 & UDN) to wrap up its 2018 schedule. Ellis and her staff will name 18 players to the gameday roster for each match.
These will be the first friendly matches for the USA since it secured a berth to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, and the first in Europe since the summer of 2017. So far, the USA has compiled a 16-0-2 record this year and is unbeaten in its last 26 matches (23-0-3), scoring in all 26 games, and outscoring opponents 91-17 through that stretch.
