FOXBORO, Mass. - Virginia rising junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) made her debut for the United States Women's National Team in a 4-1 victory over South Korea Saturday night at Gillette Stadium. She became the seventh Virginia player to earn a cap with the full national team when she entered the game as a substitute in the 77th minute.
Brian is only the second Cavalier to make an appearance for the national team while still an active player for Virginia. In 1991, Amanda Cromwell earned her first cap before the start of her senior season.
"It was a great feeling to play my first game with the national team," said Brian. "It was everything I expected and more. It was a dream come true tonight in Boston."
Former Virginia defender Becky Sauerbrunn (Class of 2007) also played in Saturday's game, playing the full 90 minutes as she made her 43rd appearance for the United States.
The United States Women's National Team will return to action on Thursday, June 20, with another friendly against South Korea. That match will be played at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J. and will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
