AP – Racing Louisville selected national team players Tobin Heath and Christen Press on Thursday in the National Women’s Soccer League expansion draft.

Both players are currently playing with Manchester United, but Heath’s rights were retained by the Portland Thorns, while Press’ rights were retained by the Utah Royals.

Heath and Press were on the U.S. national team that won the Women’s World Cup last year in France.

They were among 14 total NWSL players taken by Racing in the expansion draft.
