U.S. women to play Australia

CHICAGO -- The U.S. women's soccer team will play Australia in an exhibition game on Oct. 20 at San Antonio's Alamodome.

The top-ranked U.S., the defending Olympic champion, is 9-0 in previous indoor matches. The Americans beat the Matildas 2-1 and 6-2 last year in the final two matches under coach Pia Sundhage, who left to coach her native Sweden. She was succeeded by Tom Sermanni.

The game announced Monday is the first for the U.S. women in San Antonio since 1996.
