Sydney FC keeper Bledsoe receives maiden United States call-up

Sydney FC goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe has earned her first call-up to the United States Women’s National Team.

Bledsoe has played 21 Westfield W-League games, helping the Sky Blues to reach back-to-back Grand Finals, including a 4-2 win against Perth Glory in the big dance back in February 2019.

The 27-year-old was named Westfield W-League 2018/19 Goalkeeper of the Year for her performances in Sydney FC’s Championship-winning season.

New USWNT coach Vlatko Andonovski named Bledsoe as one of three first-time call-ups in his first selection after being appointed earlier this week.

The United States will play friendlies against Sweden on November 7 in Columbus, Ohio and against Costa Rica on November 10 in Jacksonville, Florida.
