Three Gotham FC players called up for USWNT April friendlies

NJ/NY Gotham players Kristie Mewis, Margaret "Midge" Purce and Imani Dorsey were called up to the U.S. Women's National Team for two April friendlies against Uzbekistan.

The 23 player roster was announced Tuesday morning featuring a similar roster from the previous camps. 17 of the 23 players were on the SheBelieves Cup roster, including Mewis and Purce.

Dorsey is looking to add her second cap after many of the usual defenders are out with injury. This gives Dorsey the opportunity to showcase her skillset to coach Vlatko Andonovski for future callups.

Purce has been featured for the USWNT 12 times and scored two goals. Mewis has been featured 36 times and has scored five goals. Mewis will reunite with sister Sam Mewis after an injury sidelined the younger sister.

How to watch the April Friendlies

The first match will take place in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday, April 9 at 5:30 p.m. on FOX, and the second in Chester, PA on Tuesday, April 12 at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
