Four Red Stars called up to U.S. WNT

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Red Stars will have four representatives on the U.S. Women's National Team when the squad faces Germany at 5 p.m. CT on Saturday, May 22, in Cleveland, Ohio. Red Stars defender Kate Markgraf makes her return to the U.S. WNT along with fellow Chicago defender Marian Dalmy, goalkeeper Jillian Loyden and midfielder Megan Rapinoe. U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage is bringing 22 players to Cleveland, with 18 suiting up for the match.

The international friendly will be televised on ESPN2.

Markgraf, who gave birth to twins in July of 2009 and missed the inaugural Women's Professional Soccer season, has not played for the U.S. WNT since December of 2008. She needs only two more caps to hit 200 for her international career.

Rapinoe led the U.S. with five points (two goals and an assist) during international play in 2009. Rapinoe and Dalmy each have 11 international caps, and Loyden still is in search of her first cap.
