Five Angel City players—forward Claire Emslie, midfielder Amandine Henry, forward Casey Phair, defender Ali Riley, and midfielder Rocky Rodríguez—have been called in by their respective federations for national team duty for the FIFA window that runs April 1–9.

With the 2025 Euro looming, Emslie and Henry both have qualifying matches with Scotland and France, respectively. Scotland will play Serbia on April 5 and Slovakia on April 9, while Les Bleues face Ireland and then Sweden on the same dates.

Phair will represent South Korea in two friendlies against the Philippines, on April 5 and 8. 

Riley's Football Ferns have two friendlies against Thailand, the first on April 5 and the second on the 9th.

Finally, Rodríguez joins Costa Rica for two friendlies against Peru, one this Saturday, April 6, at 2:00 p.m. Pacific time in Alajuela, Costa Rica. The two teams will meet a second time behind closed doors on April 9.

The NWSL returns to play the weekend after the international break closes. Angel City plays next on Saturday, April 13 at 6:30 p.m. Pacific, on the road against Chicago.
