Pretty good experienced/newer player mix here. Media call with Vlatko Andonovski today around noon ET, so more on his perspective on #USWNT January training camp soon.
Re: injuries: Vlatko says Sauerbrunn had "a little setback that did not allow her to properly get ready and prepare physically for this camp" so he and medical staff decided not to call her in this time. Alyssa Naeher has recovered well and "she's ready to step in." #USWNT
Q from @thegoalkeeper about filling a 9 role: Vlatko rattles off Sophia Smith, Cat Macario, and Ashley Hatch as candidates if they play a formation with a 9. #USWNT
Speaking of Macario, Vlatko says they didn't want to pull her back and forth between preparation for the French Cup and #USWNT camp, and it was best she stayed in France. They'll announce soon if another player will take that callup spot for camp.
Q by @AlexAzziNBC on any future plans for Heath, Morgan, Press, Rapinoe: Vlatko says he told them before Nov they wouldn't be in for both Nov and Jan to allow for evaluating younger players. "These players are not out of the picture by any means." #USWNT
Q by @SandHerrera_ on Ertz: Vlatko has had several conversations with Ertz. Ertz is still not physically ready for a #USWNT camp. Says the best thing for her is to get fit for club, get games under her belt.
