Solo, Rapinoe, Leroux called up for USWNT friendly

Seattle Reign goalkeeper Hope Solo, midfielder Megan Rapinoe and forward Sydney Leroux have been called up to the U.S. women’s national team for its friendly against Switzerland on Aug. 20, the club confirmed in a Thursday release.

Solo can break the USWNT’s all-time shutout record in the match — which will be hosted at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. and broadcast on the U.S. Soccer website — and Rapinoe is returning to the team for the first time since April.

All three players are scheduled to depart for North Carolina following the Reign’s regular-season finale in Portland this Sunday and return in time for Seattle’s NWSL semifinal Aug. 24.
