[U.S. WOMEN] U.S. women's national team head coach Pia Sundhage called up 18 players from the friendly against recently crowned European champion Germany on Oct. 29 at the newly constructed Impuls Arena in Augsburg, one of nine venues for the 2011 Women's World Cup

U.S. defender Lori Chalupny will captain the U.S. side in the absence of Christie Rampone, who is on maternity leave.

Yael Averbuch and Lori Lindsey will travel for the first time under Sundhage, while 22-year-old Brittany Bock will be looking for her first national team cap.

The lone collegian called up is North Carolina's Tobin Heath. The rest of the squad played in WPS this past season. Eight of the nine WPS clubs are represented. Defender Heather Mitts and midfielder Carli Lloyd are currently out of contract.

The match in Augsburg will come on the tail end of an eight-day training camp in Germany.

U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS: Nicole Barnhart (FC Gold Pride), Hope Solo (St. Louis Athletica)
DEFENDERS: Brittany Bock (Los Angeles Sol), Rachel Buehler (FC Gold Pride), Lori Chalupny (St. Louis Athletica), Amy LePeilbet (Boston Breakers), Heather Mitts (Out of Contract), Cat Whitehill (Washington Freedom)
MIDFIELDERS: Yael Averbuch (Sky Blue FC), Shannon Boxx (Los Angeles Sol), Tobin Heath (North Carolina), Angela Hucles (Boston Breakers), Lori Lindsey (Washington Freedom), Carli Lloyd (Out of Contract), Heather O'Reilly (Sky Blue FC), Megan Rapinoe (Chicago Red Stars)
FORWARDS: Amy Rodriguez (Philadelphia Independence), Abby Wambach (Washington Freedom)
