US Women’s National Soccer Team Olympic Roster Predictions

Unlike the World Cup roster of twenty-three players, the Olympic roster is capped at only eighteen players. Taking into account the slew of player retirements since the USWNT won the World Cup in 2015, the impressive new young player pool, and coach Jill Ellis’s often unpredictable decisions, here is our best guess of who will grace the list as the 18 players on the USWNT Olympic Qualifying Roster.


Hope Solo (GK)

Alyssa Naeher (GK)

Becky Sauerbrunn (D Capt.)

Ali Krieger (D)

Whitney Engen (D)

Julie Johnston (D)

Meghan Klingenberg (D)

Kelly O’Hara (D/M)

Carli Lloyd (M Capt.)

Samantha Mewis (M)

Heather O’Reilly (M)

Morgan Brian (M)

Tobin Health (M)

Megan Rampinoe (M)

Crystal Dunn (F/M)

Christen Press (F)

Alex Morgan (F)

Stephanie McCaffrey (F)



Sydney Leroux (F)

Ashlyn Harris (GK)

Lindsey Horan (M/F)

Jaelene Hinkle (D)


Head Coach Jill Ellis should announce the actual Olympic Qualifying Roster this week.
