DJ LC

Lauren Cheney programs the iPod in the locker room in preparation for the pre-game dance party, which is sort of becoming a tradition. Cheney is one of the best dancers on the team for sure, but she won't be starting today. Christie Rampone, Shannon Boxx and Lindsay Tarpley return to the lineup after sitting out last game, as does GK Hope Solo. Defender Kate Markgraf gets her first rest of the tourney after playing all 270 minutes so far, meaning Rachel Buehler gets her second consecutive start. (Buehler? Buehler? How many times has she heard that in her life?) It's Abby and TK up top for the USA. Here is the lineup:


USA: 18-Hope Solo; 2-Heather Mitts, 26-Rachel Buehler, 3-Christie Rampone, – Capt., 17-Lori Chalupny; 7-Shannon Boxx, 11-Carli Lloyd, 10-Aly Wagner; 5-Lindsay Tarpley; 6-Natasha Kai, 20-Abby Wambach.
