US Women Called to Camp

Much like their male counterparts, the US Women have been called to camp in January. U.S. head coach Greg Ryan selected 28 players for the January 3-9 training session.

This camp is a warm up for the Four Nations Tournament in China. That event will take place Jan 18-22.

The roster includes vets like Christie Welsh, Abby Wambach, Kristine Lilly and Danielle Fotopoulos as well as four uncapped players. Those players are Megan Rapinoe, Stacey Tullock, Kendall Fletcher and India Trotter. Tullock trained with the team in 2004 and 2005, but the other three are brand new to the senor squad.

Here is the full roster:

GOALKEEPERS (4): Nicole Barnhart, Jenni Branam, Briana Scurry, Hope Solo

DEFENDERS (8): Lori Chalupny, Kendall Fletcher, Tina Frimpong, Amy LePeilbet, Stephanie Lopez, Heather Mitts, Jill Oakes, Christie Rampone

MIDFIELDERS (9): Shannon Boxx, Carli Lloyd, Kristine Lilly, Marci Miller, Leslie Osborne, Lindsay Tarpley, Stacey Tullock, Aly Wagner, Angie Woznuk

FORWARDS (7): Danielle Fotopoulos, Tiffeny Milbrett, Heather O’Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, India Trotter, Abby Wambach, Christie Welsh

This camp will take place at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.
