Called into January camp with the U.S. women's national team, Macario is the clear No. 1 prospect for the NWSL Draft, which is slated to take place on Wednesday, January 13. Although at this point, signing with a club in Europe could be her next stop as she looks to compete for a spot at the 2021 Olympics this summer.
