MOST COMMENTED

[USA-CHINA] Sunday's USA-China women's match will be played in front of a capacity crowd at 18,500-seat PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The crowd reflects the strong interest in the women's program. A USA-China match in 2010 drew only 2,505 fans.

The sell-out will mark the second-largest Pennsylvania crowd to attend a U.S. women's game after the 31,553 who were on hand for the USA's 5-0 victory against Nigeria during the 2003 Women's World Cup at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

U.S. coach Pia Sundhage brought in 28 players for a training camp being held in nearby Princeton, N.J., before Sunday's match against China.

U.S. Women's Camp Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (5): Nicole Barnhart, Adrianna Franch, Ashlyn Harris, Jill Loyden, Hope Solo.
DEFENDERS (10): Rachel Buehler, Stephanie Cox, Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg, Amy LePeilbet, Gina Lewandowski, Heather Mitts, Kelley O'Hara, Christie Rampone, Becky Sauerbrunn.
MIDFIELDERS (9): Shannon Boxx, Tobin Heath, Lori Lindsey, Carli Lloyd, Kristie Mewis, Heather O'Reilly, Megan Rapinoe, Amy Rodriguez, Keelin Winters.
FORWARDS (4): Lauren Cheney, Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Abby Wambach.
