    SEATTLE, Washington – The United States under-20 women’s national team opened Wednesday a two-week long training camp with 27 players, before traveling to Canada for the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.

    After the gathering in Seattle, head coach Michelle French will name a final roster of 21 players, who will represent the U.S. as it bids to win a second straight title.

    "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."

    The training camp roster features 17 members of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship winning squad.

    Two players -- defenders Cari Roccaro and Stephanie Amack -- are holdovers from the U.S. team that captured the 2012 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan

    In Canada, the Americans will face Group B opponents Germany (August 5), Brazil (August 8) and China PR (August 12).
