MOST COMMENTED

[DATEBOOK] In its final game before the start of the 2013 NWSL season, the USA will face China in their 51st women's international April 6 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

"China seems to be getting to the stage where they've got some increased stability in coaching staff and their player pool, and the results of that stability and planning are beginning to show on the field," said U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni. "As always, the match will be a chance for our players to make claims for spots on the World Cup qualifying roster later in the fall, but it will also be just before the players head into the NWSL as friendly combatants, so we'll want to put in quality performances for our home fans."

The USA has faced China more than any other nation besides Canada. The USA and China last met during the 2013 Algarve Cup in Portugal, a 5-0 victory for the Americans.

The game will also serve as Women's World Cup qualifying preparation for China, which competes in the AFC Women's Asian Cup in Vietnam in mid-May, a tournament that will send the top five finishers to the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada.
