The 2012 Olympic Games is quickly approaching, and on Sunday at PPL Park in Chester, Pa the USA Women's Soccer Team will play one of their four remaining warm-up games (7 p.m. ET). The U.S. will take on China in front of an anticipated soldout crowd of about 18,500, as they try to trim down their roster from 21 to the required 18.

Philly soccer fans, who a predicted to show-up in record numbers, will be able to watch goaltender Hope Solo and possibly forward Abby Wambach as they try and help their team prepare for the Olympics in London, July 27-Aug. 12.

The U.S. women, who qualified for the Olympics by winning the CONCACAF qualifying tournament last January in Vancouver, will be trying to earn their third straight Olympic goal medal. However, before that they will need to play China, Sweden, Japan and Canada prior to the Olympic Games.
