DiCicco Names U.S. Roster to Face Holland in Milwaukee & Chicago as NIKE Road to Pasadena Continues


CHICAGO (Friday, May 7, 1999) - U.S. Head Coach Tony DiCicco has named his 20-player roster for the two matches against Holland, on May 13 in Milwaukee, Wisc. (Kickoff 7 p.m. CT) and May 16 in Chicago (Kickoff 1 p.m. CT - LIVE on espn2) as NIKE Road to Pasadena tour continues. The Road to Pasadena will take the USA to nine cities before beginning Women's World Cup play on June 19 against Denmark at Giants Stadium in New Jersey (Kickoff 3 p.m. ET -- LIVE on ABC). DiCicco will use the Holland games as a final test for several players before naming his 1999 U.S. Women's World Cup Team on May 17 during a press conference at NIKETOWN in Chicago.

The Dutch are one of the few teams in the world that do not have a losing record against the United States as the series stands at 1-1-0. Holland defeated the USA back in 1991, 4-3, and the USA avenged the loss in April of 1996, winning 6-0 in Fullerton, Calif. The U.S. last played in Milwaukee on May 2, 1997, when 5,530 fans braved driving rain and high winds to see the USA defeat South Korea, 7-0. The Americans played their only previous match at Soldier Field last June, defeating Germany, 4-2, in front of 13,107. The May 16 match will be played as a doubleheader with the Chicago Fire of Major League Soccer, who will take on the Colorado Rapids at 4 p.m. CT.

U.S. forward Mia Hamm continues her chase for the world scoring record. With 105 career goals, she currently sits tied for second on the all-time scoring list with Italian legend Carolina Morace. The world record is held by the long-retired Elisabetta Vignotto of Italy, who scored 107 career international goals.
