CHICAGO – Forward Abby Wambach and goalkeeper Hope Solo are returning to the U.S. Women’s National Team after missing the Four Nations Cup due to injuries. They were among the 32 players named to a the roster for a training camp taking place in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., from Feb. 3-9, ahead of the Algarve Cup.

Wambach missed the tournament in China because of a heel injury, while Solo has been out since September while recovering from shoulder surgery.

The Algarve Cup, a tournament in southern Portugal that annually brings together some of the world’s top teams, will this year see the USA face Japan (March 2), Finland (March 4) and Norway (March 7) in group play.

The training camp roster features all 21 players who helped the USA win the Four Nations Tournament in China a week ago.

Two players are making their first WNT training camp appearance in midfielder Sinead Farrelly, a long-time member of the USA’s youth national teams programs and the second overall pick in the 2011 WPS Draft by the Philadelphia Independence, and goalkeeper Bianca Henninger, the USA’s starter at the 2010 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. She was named Best Goalkeeper of the tournament last summer in Germany.

This will be the last domestic training period for the U.S. Women until mid-April.
