The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team (USWNT) will convene for its annual January camp with the group eyeing the summer and the 2019 World Cup in France.

Head coach Jill Ellis has called in 26 players with the team set to open the New Year with two matches in Europe.

On January 19, the U.S. will take on France at Stade Océane in Le Havre, France. Game time is 2:30 eastern time and can be seen on FS1.

Three days later, the Americans will travel to Estadio José Rico Perez in Alicante, Spain, where they will meet Spain. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. eastern time and the game will be aired on ESPN2.

Stade Océane is home to France’s Ligue 2 side Le Havre AC. It seats approximately 25,000 fans and will host seven Women’s World Cup matches, including a Round of 16 game and a Quarterfinal. The U.S. will return to Stade Océane on June 20 when it meets Sweden in a Group Stage World Cup match.

Estadio José Rico Pérez in Alicante, located on the central coast of eastern Spain, seats about 30,000 fans.

Rockville Centre-native Crystal Dunn is among the 26 on the January camp roster. As she was throughout 2018, the North Carolina Courage star is listed among the team’s eight defenders.
