[HOME DEPOT CENTER CAMP]Lindsey Horan, who is playing for French club Paris St. Germain, and Cari Roccaro, the 2012 Soccer America Freshman of the Year, are among the 24 players called into the U.S. under-20 women’s national team camp, the first of the new cycle.
The camp, which runs Feb. 2-9 at the Home Depot Center, will mark the start of the U.S. effort to defend its title.
Ten of the players were a part of the U.S. U-17 Women’s World Cup Team this past year in Azerbaijan while two -- Roccaro and Stephanie Amack -- were a part of the team that won the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan.
Horan, the U-20 team's leading scorer in 2012, missed the Women’s World Cup due to a knee injury.
