No. 7 Abby Dahlkemper
Defender | Age: 26
Hometown: Menlo Park, Calif.
Club: North Carolina Courage International appearances: 40
Untested in major tournaments, Dahlkemper will complement Sauerbrunn in central defense by providing a physical and aerial dimension. Her seamless emergence in 2017 allowed Julie Ertz, a 2015 World Cup starter, to transition into a defensive midfielder and solidify the U.S. resistance.
