LIVONIA. Mich. – One Michigan player in a pool of 24 standouts has been selected for a domestic training camp for preparations for the 2024 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in the Dominican Republic.

 

The training camp take place July 18-16 in Atlanta, Ga., and will include a pair of friendly scrimmages against Brazil on July 12 and July 15, respectively, behind closed doors.
