WNT May 26, 2012
U.S. WNT head coach Pia Sundhage has named 18 players that will face China in front of a sold-out crowd on May 27 at PPL Park. Sundhage named the team after a two-week training camp in Princeton, N.J. that featured 27 players.
Four players have experience playing for former Philadelphia women's pro teams while midfielder Carli Lloyd hails from nearby Delran, N.J. and should have quite a cheering section at the match.
Here are the 18 suiting up tomorrow vs. China:
