Horan and Long will join the U.S. Women’s National Team, with Raso representing Australia. All three players return to Portland prior to the club’s next match against the Houston Dash on August 5.
The international women’s tournament features competition between four nations (Australia, Brazil, Japan and the United States) with games taking place in Seattle, San Diego and Carson, CA.
The winner of the round-robin tournament will be based on total points earned with tie-breakers awarded as follows: goal difference, followed by most total goals scored, then head-to-head result and finally, FIFA Ranking if necessary.
NWSL players will be represented on all four international rosters, with players like Orlando Pride's Marta joining Brazil, and Seattle Reign FC's Rumi Utsugi joining the Japanese team.
