Tinton Falls, N.J. (Jan. 15, 2018) – Sky Blue FC midfielder Daphne Corboz, who is currently playing on loan with French club FC Fleury 91, has officially been called into France Women’s National Team camp by head coach Corinne Diacre. The call-up for Corboz is her first into the French senior team, as she replaces the injured Sandie Toletti on the roster while France prepares for a Saturday fixture against Italy.
Corboz, 24, was born to French parents and holds dual-citizenship with the United States and France. The Greenbrook, N.J. native played in her first National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) season for Sky Blue FC in 2017. She made 12 starts over 19 appearances, recording one goal and a team-leading five assists. Prior to joining Sky Blue FC, Corboz spent two seasons with Manchester City of the FA Women’s Super League.
As a youth player, Corboz attended Watchung Hills High School and flourished within the Players Development Academy, which is a U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy partner of Sky Blue FC. She then attended Georgetown University and had one of the most decorated careers in program history. Making 80 starts in 82 appearances, Corboz accumulated 134 points over four years, registering 47 goals and 41 assists. The 47 goals still stand as the highest mark ever in the Georgetown record books. During her collegiate career, she was named an NSCAA All-American on three occasions, including a First Team nod following her sophomore campaign.
Sky Blue FC recently announced that the team will be holding its 2018 open tryouts on February 14-15 at Sportika Sports. The registration process for the tryouts is now open, and interested players can sign up today online.
