[U.S. WOMEN] Two collegians -- UCLA junior Sydney Leroux and North Carolina senior Meghan Klingenberg -- will make their first tournament appearance for the U.S. women's national team. They are among the 23 players named to the roster for the 2011 Four Nations Tournament Jan. 21-25 in Chongqing, China, where the USA will face 2011 Women's World Cup opponent Sweden, Concacaf Women's World Cup qualifying champion Canada and the host.
 
The squad includes 16 of the 25 players from Coach Pia Sundhage's January training camp at the Home Depot Center.

Midfielder Tobin Heath is back for the first time in 18 months after recovering from reconstructive ankle surgery that limited her to three WPS matches in her rookie year.
 
Lindsey Tarpley, a veteran with 120 caps and 30 goals, earned just one cap in 2010 after coming back from ACL surgery, but she also returns to begin her battle to make the U.S. squad for the 2011 Women's World Cup.
 
The USA lost back-up goalkeeper Jill Loyden to a broken hand during training camp, and with Hope Solo not yet ready for game action, Ashlyn Harris makes the roster to back up Nicole Barnhart.

Barnhart is one of five players on the U.S. squad without a pro club following the offseason shakeup in WPS.
 
U.S. Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Nicole Barnhart (out of contract), Ashlyn Harris (Western New York Flash)
DEFENDERS (7): Rachel Buehler (Boston Breakers), Stephanie Cox (Boston Breakers), Amy LePeilbet (Boston Breakers), Heather Mitts (out of contract), Christie Rampone (out of contract) Becky Sauerbrunn (Washington Freedom), Brittany Taylor (Sky Blue FC).
MIDFIELDERS (10): Yael Averbuch (Western New York Flash), Shannon Boxx (out of contract), Tobin Heath (Sky Blue FC), Meghan Klingenberg (North Carolina), Lori Lindsey (Philadelphia Independence), Carli Lloyd (Atlanta Beat), Kelley O’Hara (Boston Breakers), Heather O’Reilly (Sky Blue FC), Megan Rapinoe (Philadelphia Independence), Lindsay Tarpley (out of contract)
FORWARDS (4): Lauren Cheney (Boston Breakers), Sydney Leroux (UCLA), Alex Morgan (California), Amy Rodriguez (Philadelphia Independence)

    Could someone explain to me why O'Hara is listed as a Mid-fielder. She is a better forward than all the people named and far better than some.
