Some of the best women's soccer players in the world joined their Portland Thorns teammates for the first time Thursday at Jeld-Wen Field.

Christine Sinclair, Christina LeBlanc and Rachel Buehler arrived at training camp after serving time with their national teams.

Sinclair was a star player for the University of Portland. She and Alex Morgan are expected to form one of the most feared pairs of forwards in the league when the season starts in a few weeks.

Morgan is expected to join the team early next week.

The Thorns inaugural season kicks off on April 13 in Kansas City.
