FC Gold Pride teammates and former Stanford standouts Nicole Barnhart and Rachel Buehler have been named to the U.S. Women's National Team soccer roster and will represent the United States in the upcoming Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) World Cup Qualifying tournament in Cancun, Mexico, Oct. 28-Nov. 8.

For Buehler, the Pride captain and national team co-captain, and Barnhart, the Women's Professional Soccer Goalkeeper of the Year, the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying tournament will be their first.

The United States will open its tournament on Oct. 28 against Haiti, face Guatemala on Oct. 30 and finish Group B play against Costa Rica on Nov. 1. All the USA's group matches will kick off at 7:30 p.m. local time.

After round-robin play within the groups, the top two teams in each group will cross over for the all-important semifinals on Nov. 5 at Estadio Beto Ávila, with the first-place team in Group A facing the second place team from Group B and vice-versa. The championship game and third-place match will be played on Nov. 8 at Estadio Quintana Roo.
