[NWSL]The National Women's Soccer League's list of the 55 players who will be allocated to the its eight clubs include all 18 members of the 2012 U.S. gold-medal team. Canada's list of 16 players includes 13 players from its 2012 bronze-medal team and 16 players from the Mexican national team. Club allocations will be announced on Friday, a week before the league's college draft.

The U.S. list of 23 players includes Megan Rapinoe, who just joined French club Lyon for the remainder of the 2012-13 season. It includes three non-Olympians who are returning from overseas: Ashlyn Harris,Ali KriegerandKeelin Winters. (Krieger missed the Olympics because of a knee injury suffered in qualifying.)

The notable absentee from the Canada roster is Melissa Tancredi, who is finishing up her studies.

Mexico's list includes Mexican-American stars like Alina Garciamendez and Teresa Noyola, who played together on the 2011 Stanford national championship team.

    Everyone is wondering ? What about the 24th U.S. player ? To make the dispersal even to all teams the 56th player is needed. Which team will get slighted ? Just wondering? It has been announced over and over about 24 players.Canada and Mexico came thru.

    I hope NWSL would not make the same mistakes like WPS did. Use markee names in best places where you can draw on fans' support. WPS put Wambach in Miami while Rochester would've been her best place because of the strong fans' support. Attracting fans is more important than being fair for the first few seasons until the league takes off. Use common sense, NWSL.

    What would also be a great idea would have the teams play some nuetral site games. Have some games promoted for soccer cities that didn't get a team in the first round. For instance, have a Washington Spirit- Sky Blue play one in Philadelphia.
