Studio 90: WNT Trio Shoots for Champions League Title

U.S. forward Christen Press and defenders Whitney Engen and Meghan Klingenberg have helped their Swedish club Tyresö FF advance to the UEFA Women’s Champions League semifinal round, where it will face Birmingham FC of England in a two-leg series on April 19 and 27. Whenever their Champions League run ends, the U.S. trio will head back to home to join the NWSL, Press with the Chicago Red Stars and Engen and Klingenberg with the expansion Houston Dash. They have their sights set on a Champions League title, a feat accomplished by just one other U.S. WNT player – Ali Krieger with FFC Frankfurt in 2007-2008.
