[U.S. UNDER-20 WOMEN]U.S. U-20 women's national team head coach Steve Swanson has called up 25 players for a camp that will open Monday at the Home Depot Center as his team begins preparations for the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan. The camp will feature two full international matches against the China U-20s April 9 and 15.

"We are excited to get back together again as a team since this camp will give us the opportunity to play two full internationals against a quality team and also evaluate more players who potentially could impact our final roster for the World Cup,” said Swanson. “As a team, we feel good about our results during qualifying, but we also realize our level of play and our performance needs to be more consistent on both sides of the ball as we prepare for the World Cup finals in the fall. To that end, we really are anxious to come together again, put the U.S. Soccer crest on, hit the training ground, and continue to develop our players as individuals and even more as a team.”  

Swanson's staff will bring in five goalkeepers to this camp, including three who were not with the U.S. team during Concacaf qualifying: Jami Kranich (Villanova), Emily Kruger(California) and Emily Oliver (Stanford).

UCLA defender Caprice Dydasco, who saw her U-17 international career end early due to a knee injury, defender Lauren Lindstrom of Fresno State and midfielder Ashley Meier, a high school senior from the Cleveland Whitecaps will also get a look.

Portland's Micaela Capelle is the only player from the qualifying roster not headed to the HDC.
