WASHINGTON – U.S. national team stars Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan and Hope Solo are among 18 players chosen by coach Tom Sermanni to play Mexico on Sept. 3.
Due to limited training time, Sermanni did not call up any European-based players with the exception of Yael Averbuch, who already will be on the East Coast to attend a wedding.
Wambach set the career goals mark earlier this season, surpassing Mia Hamm, and has 160 international goals. Morgan is recovering from an injury suffered while playing for Portland of the National Women's Soccer League. Solo was the anchor of the Americans' gold medal run at the London Olympics last year.
