Three Orlando Pride players will rejoin their national teams during the upcoming FIFA window, playing international matches during the Pride’s bye week from Sept. 12-18.

Allocations Alex Morgan, Ashlyn Harris and the U.S. Women’s National team will play two matches during the week, facing Thailand on Sept. 15 at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio (8 p.m. ET on ESPN2) and the Netherlands (7 p.m. ET on FS1) on Sept. 18 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Brazilian defender Monica has also been named to her country’s roster for a Sept. 16 friendly against France. Monica recently helped lead Brazil to the bronze medal match of the Rio Olympics, but ultimately fell to Canada. The center back played each minute of Brazil’s six matches, scoring a goal in the opening game against China PR.

All three players will depart after the Pride’s next home match on Sept. 10 against Sky Blue FC and will return for the Club’s final home game against FC Kansas City on Sept. 24.

Tickets for both games can be purchased at orlando-pride.com or by calling (855) ORL-CITY.
