U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Pia Sundhage has named an 18-player roster for the USA’s match against Germany on Oct. 29 at the newly constructed Impuls Arena in Augsburg, Germany. It will be the first meeting since January of 2007 between the world’s top two women’s powers and the first time the USA has played in Germany since the summer of 2000.
