U.S. Women's National Team head coach Tom Sermanni has selected a veteran squad to feature at the Algarve Cup in Portugal next month.
Though he's still far from decidingwhat his potential World Cup 2015 squad will be, Sermanni on Monday named a 24-player squad for the annual international competition featuring a number of regulars in the team such as Abby Wambach, Christie Rampone, and Hope Solo.
The votes are in and U.S. Soccer has determined the U.S. Women's National Team's Best XI.
Making up the bulk of the Best XI is the group that won the World Cup in 1999 in front of a record-breaking crowd of more than 90,000 people at the Rose Bowl â€“ a moment widely seen as putting women's soccer on the map in America.
With 2015 Women's World Cup qualifying beginning next year, U.S. Women's National Team head coach Tom Sermanni is continuing his policy of squad rotation with the addition of a few new faces into the team that will face Brazil in a friendly match on Sunday.
