The U.S. Women’s national team has released their schedule in preparation for this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada.

The U.S. Women will play a total of ten games, four of which will be played in the United States between April and May as they make their final preparations for the World Cup.

Preparations for the World Cup kick-off in Europe, February 8, against France in the Stade du Moustoir; Lorient, France. The U.S. will then play a further five games in Europe against England, Norway, Switzerland, Iceland, and one other opponent that is yet to be decided before they head home to host four games in the States between April and May.

However, the Stars and Stripes will be without their star goalkeeper, Hope Solo, for the games against England and France after she was suspended by U.S. Soccer for being involved in a DUI incident whilst attending the U.S. WNT camp in Carson. Indeed, Solo, who has made a staggering 159 appearances for the U.S., could potentially miss more games with her suspension set to be reviewed again after 30-days.

The 2011 World Cup runners-up will then travel to Canada to face Mexico, Sweden and Nigeria before they bid to go one better and pick up their third Women’s World Cup.
