[USA WOMEN] U.S. women's national team head coach Tom Sermanni named a roster of 25 players for friendly games against Australia Oct. 20 in San Antonio (12:30 CT on NBC) and New Zealand Oct. 27 in San Francisco (3:30 p.m. PT) and Oct. 30 in Columbus, Ohio (7:30 p.m. ET). The squad includes seven European-based players -- five in Sweden and two in France -- plus college stars Morgan Brian (Virginia) and Crystal Dunn (North Carolina).

The European-based players will not be available for the Australia game at the Alamodome as it is not an international fixture date for women. Brian and Dunn will be available for the match against the Matildas, then return to their college teams. UVa, current No. 1 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25, and UNC, the defending champion, meet the day of the Australia game.

The squad includes three players from the 2013 NWSL champion Portland Thorns FC: Rachel Buehler, Tobin Heath and Alex Morgan.

The USA goes into the three-game series with a 10-0-2 record and goal difference of 43-8 in 2013.

U.S. Women's Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (4): Nicole Barnhart (FC Kansas City), Adrianna Franch (WNY Flash), Jill Loyden (Sky Blue FC), Hope Solo (Seattle Reign FC)
DEFENDERS (10): Rachel Buehler (Portland Thorns FC), Stephanie Cox (Seattle Reign FC), Crystal Dunn (Univ. of North Carolina), Whitney Engen (Tyreso/SWE), Meghan Klingenberg (Tyreso/SWE), Ali Krieger (Tyreso/SWE), Kristie Mewis (FC Kansas City), Christie Rampone (Sky Blue FC), Leigh Ann Robinson (FC Kansas City), Becky Sauerbrunn (FC Kansas City)
MIDFIELDERS (7): Yael Averbuch (Gothenburg FC/SWE), Morgan Brian (Univ. of Virginia), Tobin Heath (Paris St. Germain/FRA), Lauren Holiday (FC Kansas City), Carli Lloyd (WNY Flash), Heather O'Reilly (Boston Breakers), Megan Rapinoe (Lyon/FRA)
FORWARDS (4): Sydney Leroux (Boston Breakers), Alex Morgan (Portland Thorns FC), Christen Press (Tyreso/SWE), Abby Wambach (WNY Flash)
