US Women name their 18 for Mexico

Head Coach Greg Ryan has named his 18-women squad for Wednesday night's US-Mexico match in Rochester. The squad is much the same as the on that played China on August 27th in the Chicago area.

Here is the full list:

GOALKEEPERS (2): Briana Scurry, Hope Solo
DEFENDERS (6): Lori Chalupny, Tina Frimpong, Amy LePeilbet, Stephanie Lopez, Heather Mitts, Christie Rampone
MIDFIELDERS (5): Angela Hucles, Carli Lloyd, Marci Miller, Leslie Osborne, Aly Wagner
FORWARDS (5): Natasha Kai, Kristine Lilly, Heather O’Reilly, Lindsay Tarpley, Abby Wambach

Forward superstar and Rochester native Abby Wambach will be returning home for this match.

The two players not held over from the China match are Defender Cat Whitehill and Midfielder Joanna Lohman. Whitehill aggravated the plantar fascia in her left foot against China and will be replaced by Stephanie Lopez, while Lohman had replaced Marci Miller due to an MCL strain.

The game will air live on ESPN2 at 8pm ET. Tickets for the match are still available.
