    The U.S. is preparing for the CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Tournament, which will qualify two teams to the 2012 London Games. The qualifiers will take place from Jan. 19-29 in Vancouver, Canada, and the USA has been placed in Group B with Mexico, Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.

    The crowd at University of Phoenix Stadium will likely set the record for the largest crowd ever to watch the U.S. WNT in Arizona. The previous record was the 12,039 that came to Bank One Ballpark on Dec. 17, 2000, to see a 1-1 draw with Japan in what was the farewell match for former U.S. captain Carla Overbeck.

    The USA, who currently sits atop the FIFA Women’s World Rankings, will be playing its third and final match of the year since its dramatic run at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany where it captivated the country with an inspirational march to the final. The U.S. Women came tantalizingly close to winning the world championship before Japan scored a late overtime equalizer and then won the tournament in a penalty shootout.

    Sweden, ranked fifth in the world, comes into the Nov. 19 match having defeated the USA in two consecutive games, both by 2-1 scores. The first match was in January of this year at the Four Nations Tournament in China and the second came in group play at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Sweden went on to finish third in the tournament. Norway is the only country to have ever beaten the USA three times in a row and it accomplished the feat twice, actually putting together two four-game winning streaks over 1992-94 and 2000-2002. The USA is currently riding a 54-game unbeaten streak on home soil.The U.S. Women’s National Team’s first match in Arizona since 2000 will kick off at 7 p.m. MST.
