Boston Breakers midfielder Rose Lavelle (UW) is on the 25-player roster named by U.S. women's national team coach Jill Ellis for next month's SheBelieves Cup, which features four of the top five teams in the latest FIFA Women's World Rankings.

Lavelle, who was the No. 1 pick in last month's National Women's Soccer League College Draft, is one of four uncapped players on the U.S. roster – however, the former youth international has been part of several training camps with the full national team.

If Lavelle makes an appearance for the U.S., she would become the first current or former University of Wisconsin player to earn a cap for the women's national team.

The U.S. team will have a week-long training camp in Orlando, Fla., starting Feb. 20, before facing Germany on March 1 in Chester, Pa. (6 p.m., FS1). The Americans are first in the world rankings released in December, while the Germans are second.

Three days later, the U.S. will take on fifth-ranked England in Harrison, N.J. (4 p.m., Fox), and the Americans will wrap up the second annual tournament against third-ranked France on March 7 in Washington, D.C. (6 p.m., FS1).
