COYC: Women’s World Cup Edition

While New York is throwing the US Women’s World Cup team a ticker tape parade today, we wanted to do something to congratulate our team as well. And what could be better than showing off some of their cards?

Hope Solo

A record breaking goalkeeper and winner of two Olympic gold medals, Hope Solo is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers of all time. Starting with Parade Magazine’s All-American award in 1997, she has consistently been honored and awarded through her storied career. Now she can add helping her team win the Women’s World Cup to her list of achievements.

Alex Morgan

Alex Morgan hit the ground running, as is highlighted in her early career. Number one overall draft pick in 2011, and in the same year the youngest player on the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup team, quickly followed up with the game-winning goal on the 2012 London Olympics match against Canada.

Tobin Heath

Earning her spot as one of the most skillful players on team USA by dominating the midfield, Tobin Heath’s story is much like that of many of her fellow players. First overall pick in WPS 2010 draft, she is a staple of the US Women’s team, starting in five of the seven 2015 FIFA games and was one of the three players to score in the Final.

Meghan Klingenberg

Making her debut for the US National senior squad in 2013, during the Women’s World Cup, Meghan Klingenberg started every match in the tournament. And like many of her other teammates she was named a Parade All-American.
