[AZERBAIJAN '12] Coach Albertin Montoya has named the 21 players who will represent the United States at the 2012 FIFA Under-17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan Sept. 22-Oct. 13. The team is led by by North Carolina freshman Summer Green, who set a U.S. record for most goals scored in a Concacaf qualifying tournament at any level when she amassed 12 in just five games to help the USA win the regional title in Guatemala. The Americans will be without their youngest player, midfield workhorse Sarah Robinson of Montoya's MVLA Lightning, who is out with what was described as a "medical issue."

The USA opens the tournament against France on Sept. 22 at Lankaran Stadium in Lankaran before traveling to the capital city of Baku, where the remaining two Group B matches will be played against Gambia at Dalga Arena on Sept. 25 and North Korea on Sept. 29. The USA-North Korea clash at Bayil Stadium will be a rematch of the 2008 U-17 final won by the Koreans.

Montoya named the squad after a training camp at The Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., at which the USA defeated the China U-17s 2-1 and 5-1 in two friendly matches to improve its 2012 record to 12-0-2.

The USA is anchored in midfield by captain Morgan Andrews. The U.S. defense, which did not allow a goal during qualifying, is led by center back and co-captain Maddie Bauer. In goal, the USA has one of the best in the world at her position in Jane Campbell.

Morgan Stearns (McLean MPS Power) was added as a third keeper.

The USA will hold a pre-tournament training camp in Cyprus and will depart for Europe on Sept. 12.

Besides the USA, the nations competing in the U-17 Women's World Cup are: host Azerbaijan; two additional teams from Europe in France and Germany; three Asian teams in Japan, North Korea and China; three from Africa in Nigeria, Ghana and Gambia; Canada and Mexico from Concacaf; Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay from South America; and New Zealand from Oceania.
