Sundhage names roster for Olympic qualifying

U.S. women's national team coach Pia Sundhage announced the 20-player roster to travel to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, for 2008 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying. The U.S. will attempt to earn one of two berths to the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

All 10 games of the qualifying competition will be held at the Estadio Olímpico Benito Juarez. The U.S. opens the tournament on April 4 vs. Jamaica at 10:30 p.m. ET before facing Mexico on April 6 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

"We've had a good week of training in Los Angeles and the team is excited about the challenge of playing important matches that represent our path to the Olympics," said Sundhage. "It's always a good thing for a team to play games that mean so much and that pressure will help us continue to develop the style we want to play. We've tried different things in China at the Four Nations Tournament and at the Algarve Cup, so now it's about finding our best combinations of players for these qualifying matches."
