Dumfries’ Krieger selected to Women’s World Cup roster
Ali Krieger of Dumfries was one of 21 players named Monday to the U.S. squad for this summer’s Women’s World Cup in Germany.
Krieger, 25, a defender, starred at Forest Park High School before moving on to Penn State. She spent the past four years playing professionally in Germany. Krieger has made 15 appearances for the U.S. national team, and this will be her first World Cup.
The U.S. roster assembled by coach Pia Sundhage includes several veterans led by captain Christie Rampone, the last remaining holdout from the 1999 World Cup championship team. Rampone will be playing in her fourth World Cup; Shannon Boxx and Abby Wambach are back for the third time.
The tournament runs June 26-July 17; the U.S. opens June 28 against North Korea in Dresden.

FBI file: Steinbrenner blamed bad advice for conviction
George Steinbrenner blamed an illegal corporate campaign contribution to President Richard Nixon on bad legal advice, according to FBI documents released Monday.
Steinbrenner, who died last year after a tumultuous reign as owner of the New York Yankees, pleaded guilty in 1974 to a conspiracy to funnel corporate campaign contributions to politicians, and to making a “false and misleading” explanation of a $25,000 donation to Nixon’s campaign and trying to influence and intimidate employees of his shipbuilding company to give that false information to a grand jury.
