Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji

The matchup between San Diego Wave and Angel CityFC will feature some familiar faces after Wave coach Casey Stoney said that “pretty much everyone is available” for her squad.

More Details

Both Alex Morgan and Jaedyn Shaw have been out with injuries, while Naomi Girma returned to play in the last game.

While Morgan, Shaw, and Girma are made the United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) roster, Stoney alluded to the idea that all three would likely see some minutes tonight: “It’s my job to win games for Wave,” she told reporters. “I’m not thinking about the international window at all.”

In other news, Kansas City announced that it had accepted general manager Camille Ashton’s resignation. The news comes as somewhat of a surprise after the Current started off the season undefeated under new head coach Vlatko Andonovski.

Ashton helped with a roster overhaul in the offseason that included the signings of Temwa Chawinga and Bia Zaneratto, as well as Debinha in 2023. But things haven't always been smooth sailing: Players like Lynn Williams, Alex Loera, and Cece Kizer have called out the club's operations in the wake of trades.

In 2023, draft pick Mykiaa Minniss's mother said that her daughter was mistreated during the preseason. "I am thankful for my time in Kansas City," Ashton said in a statement. "It was important to me to dedicate my time and efforts to ensure a successful 2024 season by building the championship-caliber roster that’s currently at near the top of the table. I am proud of what we have accomplished here."
