August 22, 2018

Mallory Pugh and Kelley O’Hara have returned from injuries to the U.S. Women’s national team in advance of a pair of exhibition matches against Chile.

O’Hara, who had a hamstring injury, last played for the United States in the SheBelieves Cup in March, while Pugh has been sidelined since April with a right knee injury.

The two were among 23 players named to the training camp roster for the two games against Chile, on Aug. 31 in Carson, California, and Sept. 4 in San Jose, California.

UCLA senior Hailie Mace, was also included on the roster after making her first U.S. team appearance against Mexico in April.

The matches will be the U.S. team’s final tuneup before October’s CONCACAF Women’s Championship, which will determine the region’s qualifiers for next year’s World Cup in France.

Chile has already qualified for the World Cup.
