NC Courage – Roster Update

The obvious favorite for the tournament are last year’s NWSL Champs – the NC Courage. They’re bringing back most of their dynamite roster and a few great pick-ups from the College Draft. Even filling out the “Players to Watch” section further down this page was difficult because the reality is, whether NWSL fans want to acknowledge it or not, this team is STACKED. They win consistently because almost every name could be listed in that section – and because they have Paul Riley at the helm. Excited to see the Courage take the pitch against the Thorns on Saturday!
