Imani Dorsey Added to USWNT Roster for Upcoming Australia Trip

CHICAGO – Former Duke student-athlete Imani Dorsey has been added to the BioSteel Training Camp roster for the U.S. Women’s National Team ahead of a two-game trip to Australia, as announced by U.S. Soccer on Monday.

With Dorsey’s addition, the U.S. roster currently stands at 23 players. Head coach Vlatko Andonovski will select 18 players to suit up for each match against the Australian National Team, with the first set for Friday, Nov. 26 at 11 p.m. ET in Sydney (Saturday, Nov. 27 at 3 p.m. local time) on Fox Sports 2. The second match will take place Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 4:05 a.m. ET at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle (8:05 p.m. local time).

Coming off of 16 appearances for NJ/NY Gotham FC of the NWSL this season, Dorsey gets her second call-up for a USWNT event. She attended the team’s training camp in November of 2019 and also participated at the Identification Training Camp in December of 2019. The 2018 NWSL Rookie of the Year has previously represented the United States on the U-17, U-19 and U-23 National Teams.

Dorsey played in 87 matches with 78 starts for the Blue Devils over her four-year career in Durham. She ranks in the top 10 in program history in career goals (29, tied for seventh), assists (22, tied for sixth) and points (80, eighth). A two-time All-ACC performer, she was an integral piece in Duke’s runs to the 2015 and 2017 NCAA College Cup. As a senior in 2017, she put together one of the most decorated individual seasons in school history, becoming Duke’s second ACC Offensive Player of the Year while earning a spot on the United Soccer Coaches All-America First Team.

She was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft by Sky Blue FC (now Gotham FC).
