VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Hope Solo was listed in the starting lineup for the U.S. women's soccer team in the Olympic qualifier against Costa Rica.

Solo was in the starting 11 announced before kickoff of the game Friday night at BC Place in Vancouver.

Solo has been battling a slightly pulled quadriceps in her right leg. She aggravated the injury Tuesday against Mexico and underwent acupuncture and other treatments to get ready for the Costa Rica game.

The winner earns one of two berths from the CONCACAF region for the Summer Games in London.
