Ashlyn Harris is the starting goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s national team in Sunday’s game against France, filling in for suspended Hope Solo.
Harris has four career caps, one of them against France in the last meeting between these two teams, a 2-2 draw on June 19, 2014, in Connecticut. Solo is suspended for a training camp incident in which she was the passenger in a U.S. Soccer van driven by her husband, ex-NFL tight end Jerramy Stevens, who was arrested for driving under the influence.
Morgan gets the start in her first game action since spraining her left ankle on Oct. 17 against Guatemala in World Cup qualifying. It is the same ankle that kept her out almost seven months in early 2014.
The U.S. team Twitter account lists the lineup as a 4-4-2, but that is likely to shift into a 4-3-3:
