Newly acquired Breakers' midfielder Kristie Mewis earned yet another selection from U.S. Women's National Team head coach Tom Sermanni, who announced his winter training camp roster on Monday. Mewis will join USWNT mainstay Heather O'Reilly and recently-appointed goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher for the two-week session in Carson, Calif.
Mewis earned for first cap for the U.S. National Team on Feb. 13, 2013, joining the squad ahead of a 3-1 victory over Scotland. Four months later, Mewis scored her first international goal, factoring into her team's 4-1 in over Korea Republic with a 3rd minute tally.
For Tom Sermanni's side, Mewis has featured as both an outside midfielder and outside back. A log jam in the midfield - which includes Megan Rapinoe, O'Reilly, Tobin Heath and Kelley O'Hara - forced Mewis to drop into a defending role, though Rapinoe's inability to leave her French club Lyon may leave an opening for the Hanson, Mass. native.
The U.S. Women will resume international play in 2014.
