Coach Pia Sundhage has named a 21 woman roster for the US Women National Team's match against Japan on May 20th at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas.   The US squad will be led by team captain Christie Rampone, co-captain Lori Chalupny as well as veterans Carli Lloyd, Shannon Boxx, Angela Hucles, Heather O’Reilly and Lindsay Tarpley. Thirteen of the players won the Olympic gold medal in Beijing last August.

The biggest news will be the return of star forward Abby Wambach who suffered a broken leg in an Olympic warmup match with Brazil last year.  Wambach will also earn her 100th cap with the US Women becoming only the 5th American woman to gain 100 caps.

Tickets for the May 20 match at Pizza Hut Park, home to FC Dallas of Major League Soccer, range in price from $18 to $80, plus special VIP On-Field seats for $125. Tickets are available through ussoccer.com, by phone at 1-800-745-3000, all Ticketmaster ticket centers throughout the Dallas Metroplex (including Fiesta, Macy’s and FYE stores), and the Pizza Hut Park ticket office.
