[U.S. WOMEN] The first U.S. women's national team camp of the year will mark comebacks for several players, most notably forward Abby Wambach, who will be seeing her first national team action since suffering a broken leg against Brazil in the final match before the 2008 Olympic Games. Former University of Portland star Megan Rapinoe continues her comeback after major knee injuries in successive college seasons, while her former Pilot teammate, Angie Wonzuk, and defenders Jill Oakes and Kendall Fletcher get call-backs after extended absences.

U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage called in 25 players for the 17-day training camp at U.S. Soccer's National Training Center at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif. The camp, which will take place Jan. 20-Feb. 4, will prepare the Americans for the annual Algarve Cup that will be held from March 4-11 in southern Portugal.

The only 2008 Olympic gold medalists not in camp will be Aly Wagner and Kate Markgraf, a veteran of six world championship who will not be joining the U.S. team in the near future as she is pregnant for the second time. Markgraf had a son in the summer of 2006. She will sit out the inaugural WPS season.

U.S. ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS: Nicole Barnhart (FC Gold Pride), Hope Solo (St. Louis Athletica)
DEFENDERS: Rachel Buehler (FC Gold Pride), Lori Chalupny (St. Louis Athletica), Stephanie Cox (Los Angeles Sol), Marian Dalmy (Chicago Red Stars), Kendall Fletcher (Los Angeles Sol), Heather Mitts (Boston Breakers), Jill Oakes (FC Gold Pride), Christie Rampone (Sky Blue FC)
MIDFIELDERS: Shannon Boxx (Los Angeles Sol), Tina DiMartino (UCLA), Tobin Heath (Univ. of North Carolina), Carli Lloyd (Chicago Red Stars), Heather O'Reilly (Sky Blue Soccer), Lindsay Tarpley (Chicago Red Stars), Kacey White (Sky Blue FC), Angie Woznuk (St. Louis Athletica)
FORWARDS: Lauren Cheney (UCLA), Tina Ellertson (St. Louis Athletica), Angela Hucles (Boston Breakers), Natasha Kai (Kahuku, Hawaii), Megan Rapinoe (Univ. of Portland), Amy Rodriguez (USC), Abby Wambach (Washington Freedom).
