NEW YORK — Kristine Lilly will play for Boston, Abby Wambach will be in Washington and Hope Solo will suit up for St. Louis in the new Women's Professional Soccer league.
National team players were allocated to the league's clubs Tuesday. The seven squads received three players each.
The league's debut is scheduled for April. Other franchises will be in the San Francisco Bay area, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York/New Jersey.
Lilly, the second-leading scorer in the sport's history, will commute 20 minutes to Boston games after taking 2008 off to have a baby.
Wambach, the national team's top offensive threat, broke her leg before the Olympics but expects to be ready for the opener. Solo, the goalie for the Olympic gold medalists, donned a St. Louis Cardinals cap as the allocation was announced at a news conference.
Carli Lloyd, who scored the winning goal in Beijing, is headed to Chicago. Olympic team captain Christie Rampone will play for Sky Blue FC in the New York area.
