The U.S. Women’s National Team will play its final match of 2011  when it takes on Sweden on Nov. 19 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. This will mark the first time the USA has started and ended a calendar year against the same opponent since 1992 when the squad just played two matches (both against Norway) and 1989 (when the team played just one game against Poland). The match comes at the end of a two-week camp in Arizona that featured 30 players, of which U.S. head coach Pia Sundhage will pick 18 to suit up against Sweden. The USA is in the midst of preparation for the 2012 Olympic Qualifying Tournament being held Jan. 19-29 in Vancouver, B.C. Fans can follow the USA vs. Sweden clash at 7 p.m.
