OAK BROOK (December 4, 2018) – U.S Under-20 Women’s National Team head coach Kari Sarver has named Isabella Cook (Elmhurst, Ill.) to be among the 20 players who will represent the United States at the 2018 Women’s Nike International Friendlies to be held in Lakewood Ranch, Fla. from Dec. 7-11.

The Eclipse Select SC midfielder and Team USA will play two friendlies against international opponents France and China PR. The U.S. will play France on Dec. 7 and China PR on Dec. 9, with both games set to kick off at 5:30 p.m. CT. All the matches will take place at the Premier Sports Campus and the USA’s two games will be streamed live on ussoccer.com, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
