Portland Thorns FC – Roster Update

With the revised schedule, it looks like the Thorns now have the toughest schedule in the round-robin stage. They start off the tournament against the reigning champs, NC Courage, on June 27 at 12:30pm ET. They will also have to face Chicago and OL Reign – the other playoff teams from last season. There’s lot of anticipation being so close to seeing Becky Sauerbrunn in a Portland jersey for the first time. She joins other National Team standout Horan, as well as Canadian superstar Christine Sinclair. The Thorns are always a tough competitor – we’re excited to see what they do out on the pitch!
