    CHICAGO – United States under-20 women’s national team head coach Michelle French announced Thursday a 21-player roster for the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, which will be held next month in Canada.

    The CONCACAF champion is aiming for a second straight title in the competition and fourth overall.

    “We have a good mixture of leadership, talent and great technical ability on all three lines,” said French.  “We have a lot of tactical understanding and creativity based on the way they read the game, and I see a lot of grit and bite in the way we defend.  The combination of these factors gives us a very well-rounded team.” 

    The selection is highlighted by the inclusion of Lindsey Horan, who scored 20 goals in all competitions for France’s Paris Saint-Germain this past season, and 2014 CONCACAF Under-20 Women’s Championship Golden Ball winner Rose Lavelle.

    In Group B, the U.S. will face 2012 runner-up Germany (Edmonton, August 5), Brazil (Edmonton, August 8) and China PR (Moncton, August 12).
