Hughes died last Thursday, aged 25, after being hit near the ear by a ball during a match between South Australia and his former state side New South Wales at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Chalupny was called one of the "top five players in the world" a few years ago by a former coach. Despite this, she hasn't played for the United States national team in five years, sidelined by a history of concussions. That could change in Brazil, where Chalupny has returned to the U.S. team for a four-team tournament starting Wednesday Dec. 10, 2014, in the capital Brasilia against Brazil, China and Argentina. She's hoping to make the final American team for next year's World Cup in Canada. (AP Photo/Armando Franca, File)
