Geez giglio, China is stuck with Norway again? again? again?

And probably without the WUSA players. Well, China's coach Ma Yuan-an had already declared a month ago that "since we are playing a young and inexperienced team at the moment, I will expect some losses."

What heart

On a lighter note, good luck to you guys tomorrow. I will be watching with much interest.

Yes, the Groups are the same as last year, except Canada and Denmark switched places.

BTW, last year USA beat Norway 1-0 in the final.

Canada's roster for the Algarve Cup:

Nicole Wright GK
Karina LeBlanc GK (Boston Breakers)
Breanna Boyd D
Sharolta Nonen D (Atlanta Beat)
Marie-Claude Dion D
Janine Willis D
Katie Lee D
Noel Trepanier D
Andrea Neil M
Randee Hermus M
Leah Robinson M
Amy Walsh M (Bay Area CyberRays)
Kristina Kiss M
Clare Rustad M
Kim Warner F
Christine Sinclair F
Charmaine Hooper F (Atlanta Beat)
Isabelle Harvey F

The 18-player roster consists of two new players from the team that split a two-game series with Morocco earlier this month. Noel Trepanier, who plays for the Ottawa Fury and led the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees to the CIAU Final in November while being named the country’s most valuable player in 2000, earns her first national team call-up after impressing during a training camp in Ottawa in January. Katie Lee returns to the national team for the first time since playing in Canada’s 3-1 win over the United States on November 11, 2000. The pair will replace the injured Isabelle Morneau (dislocated shoulder) and Silvana Burtini who is in training with the Carolina Courage (WUSA). Christine Latham, who missed the Morocco series, will also not attend the Algarve Cup due to school commitments at the University of Nebraska.

Canadian veteran Charmaine Hooper is three appearances away from becoming Canada’s all-time caps leader. Hooper has been capped 70 times for her country, two less than Geri Donnelly who leads with 72 appearances. Hooper could pass Donnelly against Sweden in the second game of the tournament if she plays against Russia (in a pre-tournament friendly on March 8) and the United States. Hooper is already Canada’s all-time leading goalscorer with 44 goals.

Well, best of luck to the Portuguese women.

I believe RTPi thought about televising a few matches, then realized it would cut into precious "fado time".

Hmmmmm....I doubt about it... I don't know about RTPI,but here they never televise women games.The last (and one of the few) they showed was Portugal-Italy and it was TVI that televised it.So,I have no hope of watching any of those games.Probably they won't be televised.

Damn, I was really hoping to see the Portuguese National team in action. I've never seen them play.

Maybe I'll be able to catch some highlights.

The veterans of the USA team are all in pre-season training camps with their WUSA teams, and will NOT be participating in the Algarve Cup. The national team roster features all college and high school players; their average age is just over 19. 11 of the 20 players are uncapped.

The team will play a friendly against Italy on March 7 before the Algarve Cup competition starts on March 11.

United States Women's National Team Roster:

Code:
No.    Name            Pos.  Birthdate Hometown             School     Caps/Goals
1  Oleksiuk, Emily     GK   12/10/80  Willow Grove, Pa.     Penn State      0/0
2  Kluegel, Jena        M   11/02/79  Mahtomedi, Minn.      North Carolina  5/0
3  Kraus, Anna          D   07/29/80  Sunnyvale, Calif.     Santa Clara     1/0
4  Reddick, Catherine   D   02/10/82  Birmingham, Ala.      North Carolina  2/0
5  Marquand, Ally       D   07/01/81  Irvine, Calif.        Stanford        0/0
6  Bell, Keisha         D   12/20/79  Spring, Tex.          Florida         0/0
7  Randolph, Sara       M   02/27/83  Cincinnati, Ohio      Sycamoretts HS  0/0
8  Ramsey, Alyssa       F   09/21/82  Cornelius, N.C.       North Carolina  3/0
9  Schott, Laura        F   04/04/81  Wilsonville, Ore.     California      0/0
10 Lohman, Joanna       M   06/26/82  Silver Spring, Md.    Penn State      0/0
11 Monroe, Mary Frances M   02/07/80  Tariffville, Conn.    Connecticut     5/0
12 Welsh, Christie      F   02/27/81  Massapeaqua Park, N.Y. Penn State   15/11
13 Steadman, Amy        D   09/08/84  Brevard, N.C.         Brevard HS      0/0
14 Ward, Marcie         M   02/01/82  Alamo, Calif.         Stanford        0/0
15 Hawkins, Devvyn      M   11/29/80  Olympia, Wash.        Santa Clara     0/0
16 Weiss, Kristin       F   05/01/84  Brecksville, Ohio     Walsh Jesuit HS 0/0
17 Cramer, Aleisha      M   07/29/82  Lakewood, Colo.       Brigham Young   9/0
18 Solo, Hope           GK  07/30/81  Richland, Wash.       Washington      4/0
19 Chalupny, Lori       M   01/29/84  Chesterfield, Mo.     Nerinx Hall HS  0/0
20 Rigamat, Stephanie   F   07/05/79  LaCrescenta, Calif.   UCLA            2/0

While the Algarve Cup will be a tremendous experience for these players, I have to wonder whether they can handle the rigours of 5 games in 11 days against top international competition! I assume everyone else is sending their full national teams, so why is the US not doing so? This shows a lack of respect for the tournament, which up to now has been very prestigious.

It can't be that WUSA won't release players to the National Team - the Canadian WUSA players will be in the Algarve. It must be a conscious decision not to field their best team. I just hope these youngsters can handle it.

Does anyone have info on any of the other 6 teams?

Italy 1, USA 0

Based on an AP report:

Silvia Tagliacarne scored in the 87th minute Tuesday to lead the Italian women's team over the United States 1-0 in an exhibition game March 7 at Rieti, Italy.

The USA team, which didn't take a shot in the first half and was outshot 13-6 overall, sent a roster filled with young players because most veterans are preparing for next month's start of the WUSA.

Italy is training for the European Women's Championships in June.

"In the first half, we played with fear. In the second half we played with courage and risk-taking with the ball at our feet," U.S. coach April Heinrichs said. "More players were willing to pass the ball forward. Everyone responded to this change and we created more chances in the second half."

Eight Americans made their first international appearances: defender Ally Marquand and forward Stephanie Rigamat started, along with midfielders Devvyn Hawkins, Joanna Lohman and Marcie Ward. Midfielders Lori Chalupny and Sara Randolph were substitutes along with forward Laura Schott.

The U.S. team next goes to the Algarve Cup in Portugal for games against Canada (March 11), Portugal (March 13) and Sweden (March 15).

Hmmm, giglio, this is interesting.

Perhaps the U.S. is just *warming up* and trying out new/young players. Perhaps not I bet you are anxious to see the outcome of the first match (vs Canada) four days from now?

Btw, glad we both like mountains cool sig.

Yes, they're definitely trying out the new young talent, but what a baptism of fire! :eekani:

Most of these young women have never faced anything like the level of competition they will face from Canada, Portugal and Sweden, in the space of 5 days. The consolation, I guess, is that if they finish last in Group A they will avoid having to play China or Norway on March 17.

BTW, Canada plays Russia March 8 in a warm-up match. I'll post results as soon as I can find them.
