[U.S. UNDER-23 WOMEN] The U.S. under-23 women's national team will face Ireland's women's national team on Wednesday in Dublin and Northern Ireland's women's national team in Belfast on Wednesday.

U-23 coach Bill Irwin, a native of Northern Ireland, took 18 collegians to Belfast, where they will be based.

Two players were part of the U.S. team that won the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Chile last December: center back Lauren Fowlkes and midfielder Keelin Winters.

Winters is one of three U-23 players from the University of Portland, where Irwin is the men's head coach. He took two players each from Texas A&M, UCLA, Santa Clara and Stanford.

This is the U-23s' second trip to Europe this year. They defeated Norway and England U-23 teams in Spain in February.

U.S. U-23 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS: Kristin Arnold (Texas A&M), Kristin Olsen (USC).
DEFENDERS: Lauren Barnes (UCLA), Lauren Fowlkes (Notre Dame), Kat Reynolds (Santa Clara), Brittany Taylor (Connecticut), Jessica Tsao (Portland), Brianne Young (Texas A&M).
MIDFIELDERS: Ashley Bowyer (Ohio State), Kendra Chandhoke (Portland), Ali Hawkins (North Carolina), Katie Oakes (California), Kylie Wright (UCLA), Keelin Winters (Portland).
FORWARDS: Kiki Bosio (Santa Clara), Kelley O'Hara (Stanford), Christen Press (Stanford), Katie Schoepfer (Penn State).
