The Colorado women's soccer team will continue to be well-represented on the international stage.

On Tuesday, US Soccer announced that Buffaloes standout midfielder Taylor Kornieck will be on the roster for the U-20 U.S. Women's National Team for three matches next week in Spain.

Kornieck, who will be a junior this fall, has started all 44 games in two seasons at CU, recording 18 goals and eight assists. She already ranks seventh in program history in goals and points (44).

Kornieck has logged plenty of international team experience, appearing in a total of six matches last summer for the U-19 and U-20 women's teams. Kornieck also served as a team captain for the US U-18 team in 2016. Kornieck scored her first international goal against England last summer and also recorded a pair of assists.

Kornieck and the U-20 team is scheduled to play Sweden on April 5, England on April 7, and Italy on April 9 in La Manga, Spain.

Kornieck's latest national team assignment arrives on the heels of Hannah Cardenas' first international appearance with the U.S. U-19 team on March 4 against the Netherlands. Cardenas was a freshman defender last fall who started all 22 games for the Buffs.
