SANTA CLARA, Calif. - The United States women's national team arrived in Shanghai, China, yesterday afternoon for the 2007 FIFA World Cup. Former Broncos stars Marian Dalmy ('06), Leslie Osborne ('04) and Aly Wagner ('02) are among those who were named to this year's U.S. National team roster.

Defender Dalmy, who was an All-American and the 2006 WCC Player of the Year while at Santa Clara, was the first member of the squad to check in with ussoccer.com's World Cup blog. She is the only player on the U.S. roster to make her first trip to China and in her postcard talked about the USA's first few days abroad, the DVDs she's been watching and her glorious victory over Marci Jobson.
