Alex Morgan, who injured her ankle in Saturday's 4-1 win over Scotland on Saturday, will sit out the match, which concludes a two-game series to kick off the USA's 2013 season under new coach Tom Sermanni.

The majority of the team consists of players who will play in the new NWSL. Three players were recalled from Europe, including

Christen Press, who scored two goals in her international debut on Saturday, is one of three European-based players in the squad.
