[USA WOMEN] Bayern Munich star Sarah Hagen earned her first official call-up for the U.S. women's national team, which is headed to a two-week season-ending camp beginning Dec. 3 at U.S. Soccer’s National Training Center in Carson, Calif.

U.S. coach Tom Sermanni has called up 31 players for the camp, including Amy Rodriguez, who makes her return to the national team after the birth of her son in early August, and defender Amy LePeilbet, who is in the final stages of her recovery from ACL surgery.

LePeilbet will be in the camp just for the first week as her progress will be evaluated by the U.S. staff.

Hagen and Bayern Munich teammates Amber Brooks and Erika Tymrak will arrive from Germany Dec. 9. Bayern Munich is currently in third place in the Frauen-Bundesliga.

Four collegians have been called up, including Crystal Dunn (North Carolina) and Morgan Brian (Virginia), whose teams have advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament. Santa Clara's  Julie Johnston will join the camp on Dec. 4.

Texas sophomore Abby Smith is one of seven keepers who will attend a pre-camp training period under U.S. goalkeeper coach Paul Rogers. Brittany Cameron, who played 18 matches for Sky Blue FC in the NWSL, and Smith are the only goalies without national team experience.

The notable absence is Megan Rapinoe, who has not been released by her French club Lyon.

U.S. Women’s Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (7): Nicole Barnhart (FC Kansas City), Brittany Cameron (Sky Blue FC), Adrianna Franch (WNY Flash), Jill Loyden (Sky Blue FC), Alyssa Naeher (Boston Breakers), Abby Smith (Texas), Hope Solo (Seattle Reign FC)
