U.S. women’s national team head coach Jill Ellis has named the final 23-player roster for the SheBelieves Cup, U.S. Soccer announced Friday.

Ellis called in 26 players for a training camp in Orlando before the roster was pared down to 23. The players left off the final roster are Washington Spirit midfielder Rose Lavelle and forward Ashley Hatch, as well as UCLA defender Hallie Mace.

“We have an experienced and hungry group of players who are excited to take on a big rival,” Ellis said in a U.S. soccer news release. “The players relish the opportunities to play the absolute best teams in the world and after a really productive week of training in Florida, we’re ready for the unique challenges that each of these teams will present.”

Crystal Dunn, whose rights were acquired by the North Carolina Courage in a January trade, remained with Chelsea FC in England during the training camp, but will join the team ahead of the USWNT’s opening game vs. Germany on March 1 in Columbus, Ohio.

Germany, England and France have also named their rosters for the tournament.

U.S. Soccer also announced on Friday that all non-USWNT games will streamed on ESPN3 as well as the ESPN app. All U.S. games will be broadcast on ESPN2 or ESPNews.
