[U.S. WOMEN] Kristine Lilly, the world's all-time cap leader with 340 international appearances, is set to make her first appearance for the USA in 2008 when the USA faces China in a pair of games, Dec. 13 at the Home Dept Center in Carson, Calif., and Dec. 17 at Ford Field in Detroit.

Lilly was among 22 players called up by U.S. coach Pia Sundhage for the two games that will end what has been an historic year for the U.S. women, who have compiled a 31-1-2 mark in 2008, setting records for wins and best winning percentage in a calendar year.

Lilly took most of 2008 off as she gave birth to her first child, a daughter, last June. Lilly played for Sundhage in the last year of the WUSA at Boston.

Two of the youngest members of the 2008 Olympic gold medal team also return to the roster after finishing their college seasons. Forward Amy Rodriguez recently finished her senior season at USC, and forward Lauren Cheney will play for UCLA at the Women's College Cup, which begins Friday in Cary, N.C.

U.S. Women's Roster:
GOALKEEPERS: Nicole Barnhart (Gilbertsville, Pa.), Hope Solo (Richland, Wash.), Briana Scurry (Dayton, Minn.).
DEFENDERS: Rachel Buehler (Del Mar, Calif.), Lori Chalupny (St. Louis, Mo.), Stephanie Cox (Elk Grove, Calif.), Marian Dalmy (Lakewood, Colo.), Tina Ellertson (Vancouver, Wash.), Kate Markgraf (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.), Heather Mitts (Cincinnati, Ohio), Christie Rampone (Point Pleasant, N.J.).
MIDFIELDERS: Shannon Boxx (Redondo Beach, Calif.), Carli Lloyd (Delran, N.J.), Heather O'Reilly (East Brunswick, N.J.), Lindsay Tarpley (Kalamazoo, Mich.), Aly Wagner (San Jose, Calif.), Kacey White (Arlington, Texas).
FORWARDS: Lauren Cheney (Indianapolis, Ind.), Angela Hucles (Virginia Beach, Va.), Natasha Kai (Kahuku, Hawaii), Kristine Lilly (Wilton, Conn.), Amy Rodriguez (Lake Forest, Calif.).
