Four Breakers Called Up for U.S. National Team Matches Versus Japan

Posted by iamhannah on May 6, 2009

Westwood, Mass. (May 6, 2009) – Four Boston Breakers are among the 21 players called up to the U.S. Women’s National Team by head coach Pia Sundhage, it was announced this afternoon by U.S. Soccer. The team will face Japan in a pair of matches, May 20 in Frisco, Texas and again on May 23 in Sandy, Utah.

The four Breakers, a total which matches the Chicago Red Stars for the WPS team with the most call-ups, are forward Amy Rodriguez, midfielder Angela Hucles and defenders Amy LePeilbet and Heather Mitts.  None of the four will miss any matches with Boston, and will join the national team following the Breakers home match against the Washington Freedom on May 17.

Rodriguez, Hucles and Mitts have all been mainstays with the national team in recent times and were each a part of the gold medal-winning squad which defeated Brazil last summer in the final of the Beijing Olympics.  For LePeilbet, this is her first time back with the team since 2006.

Since the Olympic triumph, both Hucles and Mitts have hit the 100 cap (appearance) milestone, becoming the 24th and 25th Americans, respectively, to do so. Hucles earned her 100th cap against the Korea Republic on Nov. 8, while Mitts reached the century mark in the previous U.S. match against Sweden in the final of the Algarve Cup on March 11.

Rodriguez, who had the assist on the game-winning goal in the USA’s 1-0 win over Brazil in the Olympic final, has scored six times in 35 international matches. LePeilbet has earned 23 caps with the national team from 2004-06.

These will be the first-ever international games for the U.S. during the WPS season and the first domestic matches of 2009 for a U.S. team which is in very early preparations for qualifying for the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany. Seventeen of the 21 players on the roster are currently playing in WPS, and Sundhage also named four collegiate players.
