[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] Australia recalled its controversial WPS star Lisa de Vanna only a month after she was kicked out of training for the Women's World Cup. The Matildas also selected Ellyse Perry, who has already won a World Cup -- in women's cricket -- and seven teenagers.

De Vanna, who plays in WPS for magicJack, was kicked out of training camp when she refused to attend a photo shoot. Last year, she landed in hot water when a mother complained her daughter viewed photos of women using animal statues as props to simulate sexual acts on De Vanna's Facebook page

Perry, 20, was a member of Australia's 2010 Twenty20 championship team. "Having had that experience with cricket and also winning a World Cup I know how great that is and how enjoyable that is," she said.

Sermanni's youngest player is 16-year-old Caitlin Foord. The Australia squad also includes three 17-year-olds: Emily van Egmond, Sam Kerr and Teigen Allen.

Australia Roster:
Goalkeepers: Melissa Barbieri (Melbourne Victory); Casey Dumont (Brisbane Roar); Lydia Williams (Canberra United)
Defenders: Teigen Allen (Sydney FC); Laura Alleway (Brisbane Roar); Kim Carroll (Brisbane Roar); Elise Kellond-Knight (Brisbane Roar); Ellyse Perry (Canberra United); Clare Polkinghorne (Brisbane Roar); Servet Uzunlar (Sydney FC)
Midfielders: Tameka Butt (Brisbane Roar); Lauren Colthorpe (Brisbane Roar); Heather Garriock (LdB Malmo); Collette McCallum (Perth Glory); Sally Shipard (Canberra United); Emily van Egmond (Canberra United)
Forwards: Lisa De Vanna (Brisbane Roar); Caitlin Foord (Sydney FC); Samantha Kerr (Perth Glory); Leena Khamis (Sydney FC); Kyah Simon (Sydney FC)
