[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] German women's soccer got a scare Monday when star Birgit Prinz went down with an ankle injury and had to leave practice. Reports later in the day indicated that the injury would not prevent her from captaining the two-time defending champions at Women's World Cup they will host.

The 33-year-old Prinz, who went down awkwardly during a challenge at training, is the all-time leading Women's World Cup goal-scorer with 14 goals and has scored 128 goals in 208 international matches for Germany.

Germany opens play at the Women's World Cup against Canada on June 26.

Germany Roster:
Goalkeepers: Nadine Angerer (FFC Frankfurt), Ursula Holl (FCR Duisburg), Almuth Schult (Magdeburger FFC)
Defenders: Saskia Bartusiak (FFC Frankfurt), Linda Bresonik (FCR Duisburg), Verena Faisst (VfL Wolfsburg), Lena Goessling (SC Bad Neuenahr), Annike Krahn (FCR Duisburg), Babett Peter (Turbine Potsdam), Bianca Schmidt (Turbine Potsdam)
Midfielders: Fatmire Bajramaj (Turbine Potsdam), Melanie Behringer (1.FFC Frankfurt), Kerstin Garefrekes (FFC Frankfurt), Ariane Hingst (FFC Frankfurt), Kim Kulig (Hamburger SV), Simone Laudehr (FCR Duisburg), Celia Okoyino da Mbabi (SC Bad Neuenahr)
Forwards: Inka Grings (FCR Duisburg), Martina Mueller (VfL Wolfsburg), Alexandra Popp (FCR Duisburg), Birgit Prinz (FFC Frankfurt)
