Stanford's all-Pac 10 freshman selection, Ali Riley, is one of five collegians named to New Zealand's roster for the Oceania qualifying tournament for the 2007 Women's World Cup.

The American-born Riley played for New Zealand at the 2006 Under-20 Women's World Cup and participated this winter in an eight-day training camp in Auckland involving 30 players, the first phase of New Zealand's buildup to the Oceania World Cup qualifying. Riley's father, a professor at UCLA, was born in New Zealand, and Riley holds dual citizenship. The forward was raised in Southern California and played for the Westside Breakers and So Cal United.

Also selected was the New Zealand captain Hayley Moorwood, who was the leading scorer at VCU last season as a junior. Other U.S. collegians in the New Zealand squad are defender Hannah Bromley (Tennessee Tech), midfielder Emily McColl (Coastal Carolina) and Emma Humphries (Coastal Carolina).

New Zealand will meet Tonga, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea in the OFC World Cup qualifying tournament, April 9 -14. The winner will represent Oceania at the FIFA Women's World Cup in China from September 10-30.
