The U.S. Women’s National Team will open the Nike U.S. Women’s Cup on Sunday, Sept. 29, against Russia at the Mitchel Athletic Complex in Uniondale, N.Y. The USA will then travel to Cary, N.C. to play two matches as SAS Stadium, facing Australia on Oct. 2 (kickoff at 7:30 p.m. ET live on ESPN2) and Italy on Oct. 6 (kickoff at 2 p.m. live on ESPN2). SAS Stadium is the home of the 2002 WUSA champion Carolina Courage, who won the league’s second title, in large part due to the play of Danielle Slaton, the subject of today’s Q & A.
