United States women's soccer head coach Pia Sunhage has released her 18-woman roster for this summer's Olympic games in the United Kingdom. Headlined by 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup stars Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, and Hope Solo, the 2012 Olympic roster features a total of 17 players from last year's World Cup squad.

The squad is also very similar to the one that won gold at the last Olympic games in Beijing, with 11 players retaining their spot from four years ago.
