CHAMPAIGN -- Illinois soccer star Vanessa DiBernardo has been called up and will join the US Women's National Team for their game September 3 against Mexico.  This is likely just a temporary call-up.  DiBernardo is replacing injured Megan Rapinoe.

This will be DiBernardo's first career appearance with the senior national team.  It is the highest level of international competition, and she is no stranger to the international game.  The senior midfielder helped Team USA's U20 team to a World Cup championship last year.

You can see DiBernardo and Team USA in action September 3rd at 7:00 pm CT on Fox Sports 1.
