The defending U-20 women's world champion's first international trip of the year sends them to La Manga, Spain March 1-12 for the 12
Nations tournament, where the USA will face Norway, Germany and Sweden. Three Tar Heels will be on the roster for this trip, including freshman defender Hanna Gardner, freshman striker Summer Green and striker Amber Munerlyn, who signed a letter of intent with the Tar Heels earlier this month and will join the Tar Heels in the fall.
Eight of the players called up were members of the U.S. team that played in the 2012 U-17 Women's World Cup in Azerbaijan.
Seven are currently college players, the rest -- besides Lindsey Horan, who skipped college soccer and joined Paris Saint-Germain -- are high-schoolers.
