Chalupny Back in Lineup

SHENYANG, China (August 12, 2008) - U.S. defender Lori Chalupny has been cleared to play today against New Zealand in Shenyang for the USA’s third Group G match at the 2008 Olympics. Chalupny was injured in the USA’s first match against Norway, and sat out the USA’s 1-0 victory over Japan on Aug. 9. Further neurologic testing has shown marked improvement in her condition and she is currently not suffering any ill-effects from the collision on Aug. 6.

Here's the U.S. lineup:

Solo; Mitts, Buehler, Rampone, Chalupny; O'Reilly, Lloyd, Boxx, Tarpley; Hucles, Rodriguez

Great game and everyone in the team performed well.

Congrats to O'reilly for scoring the fastest goal in the history of women's soccer perhaps! Props to Rachel Buehler for doing well in defence and good to see Chups back!

Well done Team USA!

In the game against New Zealand this morning, the US should have been called for offsides on their 3rd goal. Our deepest attacker in front of the net on the shot had only 1 defender behind her. The GK had stepped up.
