Three Bruins in Germany for FIFA Women's World Cup

June 17, 2011

LOS ANGELES - UCLA women's soccer fans should pay special attention to this summer's FIFA Women's World Cup, as three players with UCLA ties will be competing in the global event, which takes place from June 26 to July 17 in various cities across Germany.

Former Bruin Lauren Cheney is UCLA's marquee player in Germany, as she is one of four forwards on the U.S. Women's National Team. The U.S. is seeking its third world championship, having won titles in 1991 and 1999. Cheney recently notched a spectacular goal in stoppage time to help Team USA down Mexico, 1-0 in a World Cup tuneup on June 5 in Harrison, N.J. It marked Cheney's third international goal of 2011. The U.S. opens up group play on June 28 against North Korea. That match takes place in Dresden, Germany. (Lauren Cheney U.S. Soccer Bio)

Rosie White, who will be a freshman at UCLA in the fall, is a forward on the New Zealand National Team, which opens up play against Japan on June 27 in Bochum, Germany. She was one of the youngest players to ever play for New Zealand when she made her senior debut as a 15-year-old against China in 2009. She was named the New Zealand Football Association's Young Female Player of the Year in 2008 and 2009. (Rosie White New Zealand Bio)

Stewart, who recently transferred to UCLA this year after playing her freshman season at Vanderbilt, is a member of the Canadian Women's National Team. She has earned a total of 22 caps with Canada's full team, having traveled with the squad to the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. Stewart was also one of Canada's stars at the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in 2008, scoring a pair of goals. Canada opens up the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup against host Germany on June 26 in Berlin.
