Hope Solo is in, along with fellow goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris. Veterans Christie Rampone, Amy Rodriguez and Abby Wambach also made the cut.

Notably missing? Not too many, but Rachel Van Hollebeke and her 112 caps, and Stephanie Cox (89 caps) aren’t on the list.

The Associated Press reports:

U.S. Soccer said the roster will be officially announced Monday. It has since been taken down from ussoccer.com.
