[AMERICANS ABROAD] Christen Press, Whitney Engen and Meghan Klingenberg, who have delayed their return home to play in NWSL, begin their bid to lead Tyreso to the UEFA Women's Champions League when the Swedish club hosts Neulengbach of Austria Sunday in the first leg of the quarterfinals.

Tyreso's only game this season was a Swedish Cup match it won, 2-0. Press, Engen and Klingenberg all started, and Press had the first goal.

Alex Singer and Ingrid Wells are reserves for Turbine Potsdam, the Frauen-Bundesliga leader that travels to Italian powerhouse Torres. One of Torres' keepers is American Arianna Criscione, who attended UCLA and Boston College and now plays for Italy internationally.

The UEFA Women's Champions League final will be played May 22 in Lisbon.

UEFA Women's Champions League, First Leg:
March 23
Tyreso vs. Neulengbach
Wolfsburg vs. Barcelona
Torres vs. Turbine Potsdam
