Solo, Wambach lead US roster for Women’s World Cup
Question of the Day
Sundhage took four forwards, seven midfielders, seven defenders and three goalkeepers. Only nine of the 21 players have World Cup experience, but 14 were part of the gold medal team in Beijing. Rampone, the only holdover from the ‘99 squad, is the oldest player on the roster at 35. She strained her right groin in a WPS match last weekend, but team spokesman Aaron Heifetz said Rampone is expected to be fully healthy for the World Cup.
Alex Morgan, who scored the winner in the 2008 Under-20 World Cup final, is the youngest at 21.
The Americans will play Japan on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, and again on May 18 in Cary, N.C., before facing Mexico in a June 5 send-off at Red Bull Arena. They will then travel to Austria for their pre-World Cup training camp.
Goalkeepers: Nicole Barnhart, Jill Loyden, Hope Solo.
Midfielders: Shannon Boxx, Tobin Heath, Lori Lindsey, Carli Lloyd, Heather O'Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, Lindsay Tarpley.
