It’s been a busy week with several major trades and draft preparation, but here are few more stories from around the NWSL:

Houston Dash forward Rachel Daly has been called up to England’s squad ahead for a ten day camp in Spain. England interim coach Mo Marley named the 30-player roster.

New Seattle Reign FC forward Jodie Taylor was also called into the camp.

Daly is listed as a defender on the roster, where she has played often over her career, including at times for the Dash in 2017. Daly scored five goals and two assists last season.

Sky Blue FC midfielder Daphne Corboz has been called into camp for France’s women’s national team by head coach Corinne Diacre.

Corboz is currently playing in France on loan to FC Fleury 91. She scored one goal and five assists for Sky Blue FC last season, her first in the NWSL.

It’s the first call up to France’s senior team for Corboz. Corboz’s parents are French and she holds dual-citizenship with the United States and France.

Corboz replaces the injured Sandie Toletti on the roster. France will face Italy on Saturday.

The Orlando Pride announced last week that they’ve re-signed midfielder Dani Weatherholt.

“We’re delighted to have agreed to a new deal with Dani,” Pride coach Tom Sermanni said in a team news release. “Dani had a terrific 2017 season and has taken great steps in her development over her two years with us. We look forward to seeing her continuing to grow and contributing to the Pride in 2018.”

Last season, Weatherholt’s second in the league, she scored her first NWSL goal and added an assist.

Utah Royals FC officially introduced midfielder Desiree Scott as a member of the squad on Monday.

“Desiree is a proven talent in the league,” Utah Royals FC head coach Laura Harvey said in the team’s announcement. “She is the glue to any team she plays for. Her performances last season and throughout her career to this point were excellent, and I’m so excited she will be part of our team this season.”

Scott spent three seasons with FC Kansas City (2013, 2016 and 2017).
