[USA WOMEN] U.S. coach Pia Sundhage called in 23 players for the trip to the annual Algarve Cup that begins Feb. 29 in Portugal. Four players weren't with the team for Olympic qualifying: backup goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris and defenders Stephanie Cox, Whitney Engen and Meghan Klingenberg.

The USA will depart for Europe on Monday, and Coach Pia Sundhage will name 21 players to the tournament roster prior to the start of the matches. All the players Sundhage is bringing to Portugal trained with the USA last week in Frisco, Texas.

Five players who attended a training camp weren't picked: goalkeeper Jill Loyden and midfielders Yael Averbuch, Kristie Mewis, Christine Nairn and Keelin Winters.

The only player who was a part of the team that won the Concacaf Olympic Qualifying Tournament who is not in the Algarve squad is injured right back Ali Krieger.

U.S. Women’s Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Nicole Barnhart, Ashlyn Harris, Hope Solo
DEFENDERS (9): Rachel Buehler, Stephanie Cox, Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg, Amy LePeilbet, Heather Mitts, Kelley O’Hara, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn
MIDFIELDERS (7): Shannon Boxx, Tobin Heath, Lori Lindsey, Carli Lloyd, Heather O’Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez
FORWARDS (4): Lauren Cheney, Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach
