Three Breakers named to U.S., Mexico rosters

Leroux and O'Reilly to face Santiago and Mexico

 The U.S. and Mexico women’s national teams will face each other Sept. 3, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Thursday, rosters for both squads were announced. Breakers forward and Golden Boot winner Sydney Leroux and midfielder Heather O’Reilly have been called into U.S. camp by Head Coach Tom Sermanni, while keeper Cecilia Santiago was named to Federación Mexicana de Fútbol Asociación’s senior side by Head Coach Leonardo Cuellar.

"I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the NWSL matches this summer and I know all the players will be sharp for the game against Mexico," Sermanni said. "We have several key players out with injuries, but I’m pleased we were able to call in a few new players to give them a brief look at this event. Looking forward, all the players need and deserve a break, so after this match we’ll give them the rest of September off and get ready for our activity in mid-October."

"It’s a good opportunity to face the best team in the world in women’s soccer, especially understanding that our players have been participating in the National Women’s Soccer League," Cuellar said. "The game should give us a clear and firm assessment of the progress of the girls after having been in this league."

The match at the home of Major League Soccer’s D.C. United will kick off at 8 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1. Fans will be able to follow along on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and on Twitter @ussoccer_wnt. It will also mark the first international soccer match on the new FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network, which launched on Aug. 17 in approximately 90 million homes.
