Five members of defending national champion Penn State have been invited to a week-long training camp with the U.S. national under-20 team.
The 26-woman roster includes Nittany Lion goalkeeper Rose Chandler, midfielder Emily Ogle and defenders Maddie Elliston, Ellie Jean and Kaleigh Riehl. All five were with Team USA for the 2016 La Manga Tournament in Spain earlier in March, posting a 2-0-1 record.
The training camp begins Friday in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., and the five Nittany Lions leads all schools. The team, which will be cut to 20 players later this year, is preparing for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup from Nov. 13-Dec. 3 in Papua New Guinea.
