[USA WOMEN] U.S. national team coach Tom Sermanni called up former Wake Forest forward Katie Stengel, a member of the U.S. under-23 national team, for the first time in his 24-player squad for friendlies April 6 and 10 against China.

Stengel, who is slated to play for the W-League LA Blues, is the seventh player from the 2012 Under-20 Women's World Cup championship team to earn a call-up to the senior national team,

Midfielder Lauren Holiday, the 2013 NWSL MVP with FC Kansas City, returns to the national team after missing the Algarve Cup due to a family commitment. Forward Alex Morgan and defender Crystal Dunn remain sidelined as they recover from ankle injuries. The squad consists of 17 NWSL players, four in Europe, two in college, plus Stengel in the W-League.

The games at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo., and San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium will be the last before the start of the NWSL season.

U.S. Women's Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): Jill Loyden (Sky Blue FC), Alyssa Naeher (Boston Breakers), Hope Solo (Seattle Reign FC)
DEFENDERS (9): Stephanie Cox (Seattle Reign FC), Whitney Engen (Tyresö/SWE), Meghan Klingenberg (Tyresö/SWE), Ali Krieger (Washington Spirit), Kristie Mewis (Boston Breakers), Kelley O'Hara (Sky Blue FC), Christie Rampone (Sky Blue FC), Becky Sauerbrunn (FC Kansas City), Rachel Van Hollebeke (Portland Thorns FC)
MIDFIELDERS (7): Morgan Brian (Univ. of Virginia), Tobin Heath (Paris SG/FRA), Lauren Holiday (FC Kansas City), Carli Lloyd (WNY Flash), Samantha Mewis (UCLA), Heather O'Reilly (Boston Breakers), Megan Rapinoe (Seattle Reign FC)
FORWARDS (5): Sydney Leroux (Seattle Reign FC), Christen Press (Tyresö), Amy Rodriguez (FC Kansas City), Katie Stengel (LA Blues), Abby Wambach (WNY Flash)
