Germany has named its roster for the April 5 match against the United States in Offenbach, Germany (listed below).
It also looks like 22-year-old defender Amber Brooks will join the United States to train as they prepare for the April 5 game vs. Germany and the April 9 game vs. the Netherlands. She tweeted about having an opportunity to “learn from the best in the world.”
Brooks is already in Germany with Bayern Munich, her club team. While she was drafted 24th overall by Portland Thorns FC, she is no longer listed on the team’s preseason roster.
Here’s what she had to say on Twitter on Monday:
FINALLY!!! So excited for this opportunity! #USWNT
