CHICAGO (Wednesday, January 2, 2002) - The U.S. Women's National Team's clash with Mexico on Saturday, Jan. 12 at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, S.C., (7  p.m. ET on ESPN2) will be just the beginning of a three-week trek that will take the team across the world to China, where they will face Norway, Germany and China in the Four Nations Women's Tournament in Guangzhou on January 23-27, 2002.  The team begins training in South Carolina on Tuesday (Jan. 8), where they will remain until Jan. 16 when they depart for China.  The 24-player training camp roster was announced in December, and includes a strong mix of international veterans and up-and-coming stars.  The camp roster will be paired down to an active 18-player roster before the Mexico game and then again before the trip to the Far East.
