There are two big events for Stanford women’s soccer this week. The Cardinal reports for training camp on Tuesday the same day three teammates open the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada.

Sophomores Stephanie Amack and Jane Campbell, and freshman Andi Sullivan, are part of the United States team that plays Germany in Edmonton on Tuesday to begin the 16-team World Cup that will continue through Aug. 24.

Brazil and China also are part of the four-team Group B.

No school can match Stanford’s three players on the U.S. team. Amack and Campbell were starters as freshman last year on the Cardinal’s 15-6-1 team that reached the Sweet Sixteen.

Amack was a defensive midfielder, but plays outside back and center midfield for the U.S. team. This is her second U-20 World Cup, having been the youngest member of the U.S. squad in 2012.

Campbell took over as Stanford’s starting goalkeeper as a freshman last year after an early-season injury to senior Emily Oliver. Campbell was the starter on the USA’s 2012 U-17 World Cup team.

Sullivan is a midfielder who also plays outside back. She was a starter at the 2012 U-17 World Cup. She is a co-captain on this U.S. team. She was listed as the nation’s No. 1 recruit by TopDrawerSoccer.com and heads the Cardinal’s top-ranked freshman class.

However, the deeper the U.S. advances, the longer it will take for Sullivan to make her U.S. debut.

The following is the U.S. World Cup schedule (all times Pacific):
Tuesday, 4 p.m.: Germany, in Edmonton (ESPNU)
Friday, 7 p.m.: Brazil, in Edmonton (ESPNU)
Tue., Aug. 12, 2 p.m.: China, in Moncton (ESPN2)
