OL Reign – Roster Update

OL Reign will take the pitch this tournament without their biggest star, Megan Rapinoe, and with a controversial new head coach, Farid Benstiti. Nevertheless, they do have a roster that includes 2019 Rookie of the Year Bethany Balcer, as well as offseason pickup Sofia Huerta and recent addition Alana Cook who is on loan from Paris Saint-Germain for the tournament. The Reign also acquired Dani Weatherholt from the Orlando Pride in the offseason and have steady leadership across the lines in Betos, Barnes and Fishlock.
