[SEATTLE CAMP] The U.S. under-20 women’s national team will hold a two-week training camp in Seattle before it departs for the 2014 Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada. Following the camp in Seattle, Coach Michelle French will cut her roster down from 27 players to the 21 she'll take across the border.

The U-20s are coming off a successful two-match stint in France where they defeated their French counterparts, one of the favorites in Canada, 1-0 and 2-1.

The U-20 Women’s World Cup will run Aug. 5-24 in Edmonton, Moncton, Montreal and Toronto. The USA was drawn into Group B and will open its tournament on Aug. 5 in Edmonton against Germany, whom it beat in the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup final. The U-20s will then face Brazil on Aug. 8 in Edmonton and finish group play against China on Aug. 12 in Moncton.

"As we head into our final camp prior to the World Cup, there is certainly a heightened feeling of excitement and anticipation as we look to put the final pieces in place," said French.  "At the conclusion of this camp, we’ll have our final roster and will also have layered in some final key elements to help in our overall performance on the field once we get to Canada."

Two players, defenders Cari Roccaro and Stephanie Amack, are holdovers from the U.S. team that won the 2012 U-20 Women’s World Cup championship team.

U.S. U-20 Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (4): Jane Campbell (Stanford.), Rose Chandler (Concorde Fire), Katelyn Rowland (UCLA), Morgan Stearns (Virginia)
DEFENDERS (7): Stephanie Amack (Stanford), Brittany Basinger (Penn State), Christina Gibbons (Duke), Laura Liedle (Stanford), Katie Naughton (Notre Dame), Kaleigh Riehl (BRYC), Cari Roccaro (Notre Dame).
MIDFIELDERS (9): Morgan Andrews (Notre Dame), Carlyn Baldwin (BRYC), Joanna Boyles (North Carolina), Nickolette Driesse (Florida State), Rachel Hill (Connecticut), Rose Lavelle (Wisconsin), Mallory Pugh (Real Colorado), Taylor Racioppi (PDA), Andi Sullivan (Bethesda SC)
FORWARDS (7): Makenzy Doniak (Virginia), Summer Green (North Carolina), Lindsey Horan (Paris St. Germain/FRA), Darian Jenkins (UCLA), Savannah Jordan (Florida), McKenzie Meehan (Boston College), Margaret Purce (Harvard).
