Update: 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying
Final 20-Player Rosters Announced for 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship.
Concacaf revealed the final 20-player rosters submitted by the eight participating Member Associations for the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying (WOQ ) Championship. This final women’s roster for the Jan 28 through Feb 9 – 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying roster comprises diverse players.
Player National Team Roster:
Stephanie Labbe, Allysha Chapman, Kadeisha Buchanan, Shelina Zadorsky, Rebecca Quinn, Deanne Rose, Julia Grosso, Jayde Riviere, Jordyn Huitema, Ashley Lawerance, Desiree Scott, Christine Sinclair, Sophie Schmidt, Gabrielle Carle, Nichelle Prince, Janine Beckie, Jessie Fleming, Kailen Sheridan, Adriana Leo, and Sabrina D’Angelo.
In America, the players come from the NWSL clubs North Carolina Courage Houston Dash, Orlando City, Reign FC, Portland Thorns FC, and Sky Blue FC. Players were also selected from the University of Florida, University of Texas, University of Michigan and UCLA.
One of the star players throughout the history of the Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship who excelled in the tournament is Hope Solo of the United States. She stands alone as the best Goalkeeper in WOQ history.
In her career, Solo appeared in three different editions of the WOQ and it is no coincidence that the U.S. won the title in all three tournaments. According to Concacaf, Solo’s WOQ debut was in 2008 in a 3-1 group stage victory for the U.S. against Mexico.
Solo would then go on to start the semifinal, a 3-0 win against Costa Rica to finish the 2008 WOQ with two appearances, one clean sheet and just one goal conceded.
When the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship kicks off later this month, fans can once again watch great soccer.
