U.S. women's streak on line against Canada

The U.S. women's national team carries a 40-game unbeaten streak into Saturday's international friendly against Canada at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas (TV: Fox Soccer Channel, live, 7 pm ET/6 pm CT).

Greg Ryan returns to his home state of Texas for the first time as head coach of the U.S. women's national team. Ryan, who grew up in the Dallas area, was a first-team All-American at SMU. He later coached the SMU women's team after his career as a pro player ended.

The U.S. women have yet to lose in 39 games under Ryan but face a tough test in Canada, which has just returned from China, where it played its first two games of the year. Canada lost, 3-1 and 2-1, to the 2007 Women's World Cup hosts.

The U.S. women will be wearing pink jerseys on Saturday in support of breast cancer research and to help raise awareness for a disease that affects one in eight women and takes almost 43,000 lives a year. As part of the campaign, U.S. Soccer and the U.S. Women's National Team Players' Association are making a donation to both the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization and the MD Anderson Cancer Center.

U.S. Soccer is conducting an auction of the players' jerseys.

U.S. WOMEN'S ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS: Nicole Barnhart (Gilbertsville, Pa.), Hope Solo (Richland, Wash.);
DEFENDERS: Marian Dalmy (Lakewood, Colo.), Stephanie Lopez (Elk Grove, Calif.), Kate Markgraf (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.), Heather Mitts (Cincinnati, Ohio), Christie Rampone (Point Pleasant, N.J.), Cat Whitehill (Birmingham, Ala.);
MIDFIELDERS: Shannon Boxx (Redondo Beach, Calif.), Lori Chalupny (St. Louis, Mo.), Carli Lloyd (Delran, N.J.), Leslie Osborne (Brookfield, Wis.), Aly Wagner (San Jose, Calif.);
FORWARDS: Natasha Kai (Kahuku, Hawaii), Kristine Lilly (Wilton, Conn.), Heather O'Reilly (East Brunswick, N.J.), Lindsay Tarpley (Kalamazoo, Mich.), Abby Wambach (Rochester, N.Y.).
