    Other teams probably doing the same.

    uuhhh have you looked at other teams' rosters? They're almost entirely WWC-bound players in their starting XI attacks. NWSL starting XIs in general are largely depleted for international windows - that's why NWSL respecting international windows or not has always been a huge issue. HOU is far and away looking like the outlier here.

    Why not Angel FC besides Houston? You have Press, Sydney, Alyssa Thompson? Or Current with Sam Mewis, Kristen Hamilton or Gautrat? I mean they have the depth to handle some missing players. And I haven't even mentioned Portland.

    With Ellen White retirement, Beth Mead’s ACL & current #1 striker, Russo, being so injury prone. I don’t see why Salmon wouldn’t make the English WC squad
    Wiegman’s turned into more cat n mouse/ruse-opponents-out of their-defenses & then quickly counter, Salmon’s lightning speed is made-to-order for that

    Gotham is also pretty protected. The only sure US losses for the World Cup are K Mewis and O'Hara. Lynn Williams and Purce could make it, but likely only 1, not both, since they play the same position. They will also lose Ifeoma Onumonu (Nigeria).

    She only played half a season with them. She was only signed in July through the 2022 season with an option for 2023.

    Angel City, maybe. But your "other teams are probably doing the same" (emphasis added) implies it's a common strategy, when it's definitely not. Like for KC, Mewis and Gautrat are both actively in the USWNT player pool, and even in LA, Thompson might be breaking into the mix soon. As mentioned, NJ has KMew, Williams, Purce, and also Ife for Nigeria. That's a lot of turnover to manage when NTs call.

    Depth isn't the issue I was getting at - consistency is. Most NWSL teams lose their offense during international windows. Portland in particular embodies what I was talking about - they're going to lose most of their starting lineup to international duty. Depth can help them deal with that, yes, but that's always going to be a gamble.

    Here's just an 'rumour' but(none name mentioned)NWSL club going after arguably France's best player., Diani. Don't follow French soccer much accept that they got an despised NT coach & that several of their clubs have pulled back their finances(whch is the opposite what's about happening in the rest of Europe). Diani supposedly had an $400K an year contract with PSG(now don't want renew that expensive contract?) But i say never underestimate the French, if there's anybody that going to produce the female equivelant of Mbappe, it will be them!

    Even with Gunny leaving, NWSL won't be without Icelandic representation: Svava is heading to the Big Apple
