Earlier this week, England and Brazil announced their rosters for the 2019 SheBelieves Cup with NWSL players on both teams. The United States and Japan released their rosters last week, so the full tournament slate is set and all four teams will feature NWSL players. The tournament begins on February 27 in Philadelphia.

Jodie Taylor (Reign FC) and Rachel Daly (Houston Dash) have been named to the squad for England. Marta (Orlando Pride) and Debinha (North Carolina Courage) are on the roster for Brazil, as well as former Pride defender Mônica, who recently left the club.

Update  — On February 25, England announced that Chioma Ubogagu (Orlando Pride) has been called in to replace Jill Scott.

Update  — On February 26, U.S. Soccer announced that Emily Fox will replace Danielle Colaprico on the USWNT’s roster, after Colaprico suffered a reaggravation of a groin injury.
