[USA-CHINA] The USA resumes its rivalry with China -- against which it has played more games than any country except Canada -- when they open a two-game series Sunday at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo. (live on ussoccer.com at 5 p.m. ET). The USA holds a 30-8-12 all-time record against China but is unbeaten against China in the past 21 games.

The USA and China will then travel to San Diego for the second leg of the two-game set on Thursday at Qualcomm Stadium (live at 11 p.m. ET on NBCSN).

The USA is 4-2-1 so far in 2014, having swept a three-game domestic series to extend its unbeaten streak at home to 80 games and then gone 1-2-1 at the Algarve Cup, where it finished seventh. China finished in fifth place.

The U.S. squad includes 17 players on NWSL teams, four based in Europe, two still in college and one in the W-League.

The games are the last before the start of the 2014 NWSL season. The USA could have up to six additional friendly matches before Concacaf Women's World Cup qualifying takes place in Mexico in October.

Meghan Klingenberg, Whitney Engen and Christen Press have returned for the China matches but will head back to bankrupt Tyreso for the semifinals of the UEFA Women's Champions League against Birmingham City Ladies.

U.S. Women's Roster:
GOALKEEPERS (3): 21-Jill Loyden (Sky Blue FC), 18-Alyssa Naeher (Boston Breakers), 1-Hope Solo (Seattle Reign FC).
DEFENDERS (9): 14-Stephanie Cox (Seattle Reign FC), 6-Whitney Engen (Tyresö), 25-Meghan Klingenberg (Tyresö), 11-Ali Krieger (Washington Spirit), 19-Kristie Mewis (Boston Breakers), 5-Kelley O'Hara (Sky Blue FC), 3-Christie Rampone (Sky Blue FC), 4-Becky Sauerbrunn (FC Kansas City), 16-Rachel Van Hollebeke (Portland Thorns FC).
MIDFIELDERS (7): 7-Morgan Brian (Virginia), 17-Tobin Heath (Paris Saint-Germain), 12-Lauren Holiday (FC Kansas City), 10-Carli Lloyd (WNY Flash), 22-Samantha Mewis (UCLA), 9-Heather O'Reilly (Boston Breakers), 15-Megan Rapinoe (Seattle Reign FC).
FORWARDS (5): 2-Sydney Leroux (Seattle Reign FC), 23-Christen Press (Tyresö), 8-Amy Rodriguez (FC Kansas City), 26-Katie Stengel (LA Blues), 20-Abby Wambach (WNY Flash).
