Midfielder Jaelin Howell Replaces Defender Emily Fox On U.S. Women’s National Team Identification Camp Roster


CHICAGO (Dec. 4, 2019) – Florida State midfielder and U.S. Youth National Teams veteran Jaelin Howell has replaced University of North Carolina defender Emily Fox on the U.S. Women’s National Team Identification Camp roster. The 24-player training camp will take place from Dec. 9-14 in Bradenton, Florida.

Fox, who has three USWNT caps, suffered a knee injury in UNC’s NCAA quarterfinal playoff victory against USC on Nov. 29.

Howell has trained with the USWNT once previously, back in 2017 when she was 17. She played for the USA at both the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan and the 2018 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in France.

She started all 23 games she played for the Seminoles this season and scored five goals with four assists from her defensive midfield position, helping FSU into the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals. During the 2018 season, she played in 26 matches as a freshman with 24 starts in helping the Seminoles win the NCAA Championship.
