CHICAGO - Virginia junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) received her first call-up to the United States Women's National Team as head coach Tom Sermanni announced a 23-player roster for two upcoming friendlies on Wednesday. Brian, a veteran of US youth national teams, is one of just two active college players named to the roster.

The United States will play a pair of games against South Korea over the next two weeks, on June 15 in Foxboro, Mass., and on June 20 in Harrison, N.J. Eighteen players from the 23-player training camp roster will dress for each game, and if selected, Brian could earn her first cap with the national team.

The roster also includes former Cavalier defender Becky Sauerbrunn, who currently plays professionally for FC Kansas City. Crystal Dunn of North Carolina was the only other collegiate player invited to the camp.

Brian had a strong sophomore season in 2012 after missing the first nine games of the year while starring for the United States squad that captured the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup championship in Japan. Upon her return she had four goals and seven assists, earning first-team All-ACC and NSCAA Southeast Region accolades. She had three goals and three assists in the ACC Tournament, leading the Cavaliers to the championship and earning ACC Tournament MVP honors.

If Brian makes her debut against South Korea, she would be the seventh Virginia player to play for the full national team.
