SOLO, SCURRY INVITED TO U.S. CAMP: Goalkeepers Hope Solo and Briana Scurry, who were at the center of a World Cup firestorm, were invited to the U.S. women's national team training camp by new coach Pia Sundhage.
The camp marks the beginning of the run to the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. The United States plays in the CONCACAF finals for Olympic qualifying April 2-13 in Chihuahua, Mexico. Two countries from the six-team tournament will advance to China.
It was in China where Solo was benched for the World Cup semifinals by then-coach Greg Ryan, who started veteran Scurry instead. The Americans played poorly, Scurry was beaten four times in a shutout loss to Brazil, and Solo bitterly criticized Ryan for the move.
Solo then was dismissed from the team, which won its third-place game.Ryan subsequently was replaced by Sundhage, who invited 24 players to training camp Dec. 8-12. The first games under Sundhage will be at the Four Nations Tournament in China early next year.
