Sky Blue FC midfielder Daphne Corboz has officially been called into France Women's National Team camp by head coach Corinne Diacre as the Blues train for its upcoming friendly against Italy on Saturday, January 20. Corboz, who is currently playing on loan with French club FC Fleury 91, will replace the injured Sandie Toletti on the roster.

Corboz, 24, was born to French parents and holds dual-citizenship with the United States and France. She received a call-up to the France Women's B team back in November by head coach Jean-François Niemezcki to compete in a friendly against FC Fleury 91.

Corboz played in her first National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) season for Sky Blue FC in 2017. The Greenbrook, N.J. native earned 12 starts in 19 appearances, converting one goal and recording a team-high five assists. Prior to joining Sky Blue, she spent two seasons with Manchester City of the FA Women's Soccer League.

A graduate of Georgetown University, Corboz was a member of the women's soccer team. In 80 starts over 82 appearances, Corboz accumulated 134 points in 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.

As a youth player, Corboz attended Watchung Hills High School and was a member of the Players Development Academy, which is a U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy partner of Sky Blue FC.
