CHICAGO -- FIFA Women's World Player of the Year Abby Wambach has been assigned to her hometown Western New York Flash of the new National Women's Soccer League along with gold medal-winning American teammate Carli Lloyd.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced Friday the allocation of 55 national team players to eight clubs in the league, which starts play this spring. The players include 23 Americans, 16 Canadians and 16 Mexicans, who will be backed by their national teams.

The Flash are based outside of Buffalo and will play their home games in Rochester.
