U.S. national team head coach Pia Sundhage named her roster for the latest training camp, which begins Thursday in Princeton, N.J.
Most of the faces are familiar to U.S. fans, but two interesting additions are goalkeeper Adriana Franch, who is entering her senior year at Oklahoma State University this fall, and 1.FFC Frankfurt defender Gina Lewandowski. Forward Christen Press, who participated in last month’s training camp in Florida, was not called into the New Jersey camp, likely due to club commitments with Göteborg FC in Sweden.
The squad of 28 Americans will train in Princeton from May 10-25 ahead of the May 27 match against China at PPL Park in Chester, Penn.
Here is the full roster:
GOALKEEPERS (5): Nicole Barnhart, Adrianna Franch, Ashlyn Harris, Jill Loyden, Hope Solo
DEFENDERS (10): Rachel Buehler, Stephanie Cox, Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg, Amy LePeilbet, Gina Lewandowski, Heather Mitts, Kelley O’Hara, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn
MIDFIELDERS (9): Shannon Boxx, Tobin Heath, Lori Lindsey, Carli Lloyd, Kristie Mewis, Heather O’Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez, Keelin Winters
FORWARDS (4): Lauren Cheney, Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach
