USA-Mallory Pugh

Squads named for charge at PNG glory

The 16-nation event will feature several players with significant experience already on the senior international stage.

Three times U20 champions USA will line up with 18 year old forward Mallory Pugh who played and scored at the recent Women’s Olympic Football Tournament in Rio.

Paralleling that achievement is prolific Sweden striker Stina Blackstenius who netted twice in Rio, and whose goals helping her side qualify for Papua New Guinea.
