This will be the 18-year-old Shaw’s first call-up to the USWNT senior team and could be Fishel’s first minutes on the field.

The two games will also feature big goodbyes.

The USWNT’s first match in Cincinnati will double as Julie Ertz’s farewell, and the second in Chicago will be Megan Rapinoe’s final game with the team.


When speaking to media on Tuesday, USWNT interim manager Twila Kilgore provided no official timelines on players working their way back from injury.

Catarina Macario hasn’t been back with the team since tearing her ACL last June.

“She’s done a really good job. And we’re looking forward to potentially having her back in the squad in the future,” Kilgore said of the Chelsea forward.
