CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia junior midfielder Morgan Brian (St. Simons Island, Ga.) was one of the 18 players named to the United States Women's National Team roster for a Sept. 3 friendly against Mexico at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. The game will start at 8 p.m., and air live on Fox Sports 1.
Brian is one of two collegiate players selected to the roster, along with North Carolina's Crystal Dunn. Former Virginia standout Becky Sauerburnn (Class of 2007) is also on the 18-player roster for the match.
Brian made her U.S. Women's National Team debut earlier this year on June 15 in the United States' 4-1 victory over South Korea in a friendly in Foxboro, Mass. She became the seventh Cavalier to earn a cap when she entered that match as a substitute and just the second active Virginia player to make a senior international appearance.
Virginia opens the 2013 season on Friday as it hosts the Klöckner Classic. The seventh-ranked Cavaliers' season opener against VCU at 7:30 p.m. is the second game of a doubleheader. The first game features reigning NCAA Champion and preseason No. 1 North Carolina against No. 9 Santa Clara at 5 p.m.
