Twenty players have been named to the U.S. women's soccer team that will play for a spot in the Tokyo Olympics. Coach Vlatko Andonovski announced the roster for the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament Friday. The roster includes 18 players who were on the team that won the Women's World Cup last summer in France. The United States will vie for an Olympic berth in the tournament starting later this month in Houston. The semifinals and final are in Carson, California, in early February.
