USWNT to hold moment of silence for Stoneman Douglas soccer player Alyssa Alhadeff

The U.S. women's national team will host the teammates and family of Marjory Stoneman Douglas soccer player Alyssa Alhadeff, one of the victims of the mass shooting at the Parkland, Florida, high school.

A moment of silence will be held for Alhadeff ahead of the team's March 7 game against England, the final match of the SheBelieves Cup at Orlando Stadium.

Jamie Morris, a captain on Stoneman Douglas' soccer team, asked in a tweet Sunday for the women's national team to honor Alhadeff.

The USWNT was able to get in touch with Alhadeff's family and teammates, and Alex Morgan -- who plays forward for both the women's national team and the Orlando Pride -- offered to host the Stoneman Douglas soccer team and Alhadeff's family at any Orlando Pride game. 

The school is located about 205 miles south of the Orlando City Stadium. Seventeen people were killed in the Feb. 14 mass shooting.
