American defender Christie Rampone is on the U.S. Women's World Cup roster for the fifth time, joined by goalkeeper Hope Solo and newcomer Morgan Brian.
Coach Jill Ellis on Tuesday announced her 23 picks for the tournament in Canada. Seeking their third title and first since 1999, the Americans open against Australia on June 8.
Rampone, who sat out a recent 4-0 exhibition victory over New Zealand, will turn 40 during the World Cup and is the oldest member of the team. Brian is the youngest at 22.
Solo was suspended for 30 days in January after her husband was arrested for driving under the influence while in a U.S. Soccer Federation van during a team training camp. Solo also was in the van.
