[U.S. WOMEN] U.S. women's national team head coach Pia Sundhage has reduced her roster to 26 players who are training at the Home Depot Center to prepare for the 2008 Algarve Cup, which will be held March 5-12 in southern Portugal.

Former University of North Carolina player Kacey White, who has been playing in Sweden, is the lone newcomer.
