Wambach to return home in search for 100th goal

[U.S. WOMEN] U.S. women's national team coach Pia Sundhage named 18 WPS players and three collegians for matches against Canada July 19 at Marina Auto Stadium in Rochester, N.Y., and July 22 at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, S.C.

Abby Wambach, a high school star in Rochester, will return home in search of her historic 100th goal. She currently has 99 international scores in 128 games.

Veteran defender Cat Whitehill and midfielder Leslie Osborne, both members of the USA's 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup team, get their first call-ups since major knee injuries knocked them out of the running for a spot on the 2008 Olympic team.

The three college players on the roster are 2008 Olympic gold medalists Tobin Heath and Lauren Cheney and midfielder Christine Nairn, a key member of the U.S. team which won the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Chile. Nairn earned her first senior team cap in the USA's last match, becoming the first member of that world championship team to debut for the full team.

U.S. ROSTER:
GOALKEEPERS: Nicole Barnhart (FC Gold Pride), Hope Solo (St. Louis Athletica).
DEFENDERS: Rachel Buehler (FC Gold Pride), Stephanie Cox (Los Angeles Sol), Lori Chalupny (St. Louis Athletica), Amy LePeilbet (Boston Breakers), Heather Mitts (Boston Breakers), Christie Rampone (Sky Blue FC), Cat Whitehill (Washington Freedom).
MIDFIELDERS: Shannon Boxx (Los Angeles Sol), Tobin Heath (North Carolina), Angela Hucles (Boston Breakers), Carli Lloyd (Chicago Red Stars), Christine Nairn (Penn State), Heather O'Reilly (Sky Blue FC), Leslie Osborne (FC Gold Pride), Megan Rapinoe (Chicago Red Stars), Lindsay Tarpley (Chicago Red Stars).
FORWARDS: Lauren Cheney (UCLA), Amy Rodriguez (Boston Breakers), Abby Wambach (Washington Freedom).
