Stanford assistant women's coach Patrick Coda is in England this weekend as part of the United States national men's team.

"I am excited and eager to join my teammates in the UK," said Cota. "At the same time, I am extremely grateful for this unique opportunity. We are nearly one year away from our 2012 Olympic Games qualifier at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. This tour will expose a large number of youth players to international experience and build a large base for future selection to the Pan Am Squad."

The Americans opened its tour with consecutive losses, 3-0 and 3-1, to the Scottish National Team last week at the ActiveStirling Sports Center in Stirling, Scotland.

Stanford (2-0, 2-0) hosts No. 7 Michigan State Monday at noon.
