The roster features forward Alex Morgan – a finalist for the 2012 FIFA Ballon d’Or given to the top soccer player in the world – midfielder Tobin Heath and defender Rachel Buehler from the U.S. Women’s National Team. The roster also includes standout forward Christine Sinclair and Karina LeBlanc from the Canadian Women’s National Team and defenders Marlene Sandoval and Luz Saucedo from the Mexican National Team.
Additionally, Thorns FC recently participated in their first college draft, choosing defender Kathryn Williamson (Florida), forward Nicolette Radovcic (Central Florida), midfielder Amber Brooks (North Carolina) and goalkeeper Roxanne Barker (Pepperdine).
