The U.S. under-20 women's national team, loaded with some of the USA's top young talent, headed to Germany for matches against the England and German U-19s, who are both preparing for the UEFA Under-19 Women's Championships which will take place July 13-25 in Belarus.

The roster includes midfielder Christine Nairn, who earned her first full national team cap on May 25 in the USA's 4-0 win over Canada, forward Sydney Leroux, who swept the top player and top scorer awards at the 2008 U-20 Women's World Cup in Chile, Taylor Vancil, who won the Golden Glove as the top keeper at the 2008 U-17 Women's World Cup in New Zealand, and both Mewis sisters, Kristie (won the Bronze Ball as the third best player in the 2008 U-17 Women's World Cup) and Samantha, who both represented the USA in New Zealand.

The players on the U.S. team, mostly born in 1990 and 1991, are the same age as their European counterparts. The USA will face England on Monday at Stadion Flensburg in Flensburg and will take on the host Germans next Friday at Wolfgang Meyer Stadion in Hamburg.

U.S. U-20 Women's Roster:
GOALKEEPERS:Cat Parkhill (Minnesota), Taylor Vancil (Eclipse Select);
DEFENDERS: Cloee Colohan (Black Diamond SC), Crystal Dunn (Albertson SC), Cami Levin (Stanford), Kristie Mewis (Scorpions SC), Courtney Verloo (FC Portland), Beth West (Texas A&M);
MIDFIELDERS: Elizabeth Eddy (So Cal Blues), Samantha Mewis (Scorpions SC), Christine Nairn (Penn State), Teresa Noyola (Stanford), Jenna Richmond (McLean SC), Casey Short (Florida State);
FORWARDS: Lauren Alwine (Virginia), Maya Hayes (Aristics Club), Sydney Leroux (UCLA), Tiffany McCarty (Florida State)
