[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] Tony DiCicco, who led the USA to the 1999 Women's World Cup, will hope to add the Under-20 Women's World Cup to his trophy case when the Americans compete at this year's world championship, which begins Wednesday in Chile with a game against France (TV, live, ESPN2, 1 p.m. ET; delay, Galavision, 6 p.m. ET/PT).

Many of college soccer's top players are skipping the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament to compete in Chile. A total of 17 different universities are represented on the U.S. roster. Portland, with their trio of Michelle Enyeart, Elli Reed and Keelin Winters and North Carolina, represented by Meghan Klingenberg and Nikki Washington, are the only two schools to send more than one player to Chile.

Due to the overlap of the event with the NCAA season, stars Kelley O'Hara (Stanford) and Casey Nogueira (North Carolina), both part of the team that successfully qualified for the tournament in June are not able to travel to Chile because of commitments to their college programs.

Olympic gold-medalist Tobin Heath was also eligible for Chile '08 but is competing with North Carolina.

U.S. Roster
GOALKEEPERS: Chantel Jones (Virginia), Alyssa Naeher (Penn State), Cat Parkhill (Minnesota)
DEFENDERS: Kiersten Dallsteam (Washington State), Kaley Fountain (Wake Forest), Lauren Fowlkes (Notre Dame), Liz Harkin (Arizona State), Meghan Klingenberg (North Carolina), Nikki Marshall (Colorado)
MIDFIELDERS: Gina DiMartino (Boston College), Becky Edwards (Florida State), Christine Nairn (Bowie, Md.), Elli Reed (Portland), Ingrid Wells (Georgetown), Keelin Winters (Portland)
FORWARDS: Michelle Enyeart (Portland), Sydney Leroux (UCLA), Alyssa Mautz (Texas A&M), Alex Morgan (California), Nikki Washington (North Carolina)
