Defender Brittany Bock, 22, received her first call-up to the U.S. Women’s National Team today in the wake of a 12-day camp at Home Depot Center and ahead of the Oct. 29 game against Germany.

It will be the first meeting between the two nations since January 2007 and the first time the USA has played in Germany since the summer of 2000. The Women’s World Cup will be played in Germany in 2011.
The last two games between the nations ended in scoreless ties after 90 minutes.
