The US line-up vs. Sweden: Solo; Krieger, Buehler, Rampone (c), LePeilbet; Rapinoe, Boxx, Lloyd, Cheney; Rodriguez, Wambach
O’Reilly gets to rest her groin while Wambach makes the cut.
The ladies are nearly set to kickoff today against the Blågult (“The Blueyellow”) of Sweden at the Women’s World Cup Stadium in Wolfsburg, finishing up play in the dead ly Group of Bedoya.
Kickoff set for 2:45 ET on ESPN and ESPN3.com.
A win and the US avoid a likely match-up with Brazil in the quarterfinals, always good this time of year.
And this is also for bragging right for USWNT coach Pia Sundhage, she of the 146 caps and 71 goals for her native Sweden. Should be interesting.
