[UEFA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] In what will be their last game before returning home to play in the NWSL, Americans Christen Press, Whitney Engen and Meghan Klingenberg will lead Swedish club Tyreso against defending champion Wolfsburg in Thursday's final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League in Lisbon.

Following the game, Press, who leads Tyreso with nine Champions League goals, will move to Chicago and Engen and Klingenberg will join expansion Houston. The NWSL's secondary transfer window opened on Monday. Also headed to the NWSL will be Tyreso's Spanish star, Veronica Boquete, who will join Portland.

Tyreso has been rocked this season by financial problems that resulted in it not having its license renewed for the 2015 season. It is only tied for eighth place in the 12-team Damallsvenskan after five games.

No American has won the UEFA Women's Champions League, which adopted its current format for the 2009-10 season. Megan Rapinoe (Lyon) and Gina Lewandowski (FFC Frankfurt) lost in the last two finals.

Wolfsburg is third in the Frauen-Bundesliga, one point behind leaders FFC Frankfurt and Turbine Potsdam, with three games to play. Its squad includes Conny Pohlers, who played with the NWSL's Washington Spirit in 2013.
