Alex Morgan, Hope Solo Highlight U.S. Soccer Women’s World Cup Roster


With less than two months until play begins, U.S. Soccer has announced its roster for the 2015 women’s World Cup.

The roster is comprised almost entirely of familiar faces that even the most casual of soccer fans will recognize. Perhaps most noticeable is goaltender Hope Solo, 33, who once again will be in net for the United States after serving a month-long suspension this winter. Solo’s Seattle Reign teammate Megan Rapinoe returns as a notable midfielder.

Abby Wambach returns for her fourth World Cup at the forward position and is joined by standout Alex Morgan. Both are looking for their first World Cup victory. Wambach has previously helped lead the U.S. to three Olympic gold medals, while Morgan was an integral piece of the 2012 Olympic gold.

World Cup action kicks off for the U.S. squad June 8 vs. Australia.

Check out the entire roster below.

Goalkeepers: Hope Solo, Ashlyn Harris, Alyssa Naeher

Defenders: Lori Chalupny, Whitney Engen, Julie Johnston, Meghan Klingenberg, Ali Krieger, Kelley O’Hara, Christie Rampone and Becky Sauerbrunn

Midfielders: Shannon Boxx, Morgan Brian, Tobin Heath, Lauren Holiday, Carli Lloyd, Heather O’Reilly and Megan Rapinoe

Forwards: Sydney Leroux, Alex Morgan, Christen Press, Amy Rodriguez and Abby Wambach
