The U.S. Women's National Team is set to return to DRV PNK Stadium in just a few weeks, marking the second time the venue has the honor of hosting the four-time World Cup Champions. With the team set to face China PR in a friendly on Saturday, Dec. 2 at 3 p.m. ET, interim head coach Twila Kilgore named a 26-player training camp roster featuring major stars and new faces.

The full USWNT roster, including stars from the NWSL, the Women's Super League and the Division 1 Féminine, is available below:

U.S. Women's National Team Roster by Position (Club; Caps/Goals) - December Friendlies vs. China PR

GOALKEEPERS (3): Jane Campbell (Houston Dash; 7), Aubrey Kingsbury (Washington Spirit; 1), Casey Murphy (North Carolina Courage; 16)

MIDFIELDERS (8): Korbin Albert (Paris Saint-Germain, FRA; 0/0), Sam Coffey (Portland Thorns FC; 5/0), Savannah DeMelo (Racing Louisville FC; 6/0), Lindsey Horan (Olympique Lyon, FRA; 137/30), Rose Lavelle (OL Reign; 91/24), Olivia Moultrie (Portland Thorns FC; 0/0), Jenna Nighswonger (NJ/NY Gotham FC; 0/0), Emily Sonnett (OL Reign; 81/2)

FORWARDS (8): Mia Fishel (Chelsea FC, ENG; 2/1), Ashley Hatch (Washington Spirit; 21/5), Midge Purce (NJ/NY Gotham FC; 24/4), Trinity Rodman (Washington Spirit; 26/6), Jaedyn Shaw (San Diego Wave FC; 2/1), Sophia Smith (Portland Thorns FC; 36/14), Alyssa Thompson (Angel City FC; 8/0), Lynn Williams (NJ/NY Gotham FC; 58/17)

The roster includes two midfielders - 2023 NWSL Rookie of the Year Jenna Nighswonger and Paris Saint-Germain's Korbin Albert - selected for their first full national team training camp.

The roster does mark the return of veteran defender Abby Dahlkemper, who returned to the field after recovering from major back surgery to help the San Diego Wave win the 2023 NWSL regular season title. Dahlkemper, a starter on the 2019 Women's World Cup title winning team, has 79 caps but this is her first call-up since April of 2022. Defender Tierna Davidson, the youngest member of the 2019 World Cup champions, also returns after recovering from a facial injury sustained during NWSL play. Davidson, who suffered a torn ACL in March of 2022, was not part of the USA's 2023 World Cup roster but returned to action for the USWNT in September of 2023. Midfielder Rose Lavelle makes her first roster since the end of the 2023 FIFA Women's World Cup after also overcoming injury.

The roster includes two players who have earned first caps and scored first WNT goals this fall in 19-year-old forward Jaedyn Shaw, who hails from Frisco, Texas and will be enjoying a homecoming of sorts during the second match, and forward Mia Fishel, who dramatically scored in her hometown of San Diego on Oct. 29 in a 3-0 win over Colombia, the same game in which Shaw tallied her first.
