The U.S. Team
Currently the top ranked team in FIFA's Women's World Rankings, the U.S. Women's National Team has been one of the true powerhouses of the sport since winning the first Women's World Cup in 1991. The team won their second World Cup in 1999 and will be looking to take home a third in the 2015 competition after finishing a disappointing second in 2011. Scoring against the U.S. will not be easy for the opposition with defender and captain Christie Rampone and goalkeeper Hope Solo, arguably the best keeper in the world, holding down the defense. Up front Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach will provide the firepower to light up the scoreboards. This is a team on a mission with some of their stars set to compete in their final World Cup next year. Additionally they have a chip on their shoulder after losing in the final game in 2011 and not having won it all since 1999.
There is quite possibly no event as exciting as seeing a national soccer team compete at home against another country. The women on the field have trained their whole lives to be named to the squad and now that they finally have the opportunity to represent their country and play with and against the best soccer players in the world they are determined not to let either their country or their teammates down. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world and is in possession of the most fervent and dedicated fans. One step into the stadium when the CONCACAF Women's Championship is being held and you will understand what all of the fuss is about. Unrelenting action, otherworldly footwork, stunning slide tackles, and mind blowing, acrobatic saves by goalkeepers will have you seeing exactly why soccer is referred to as "the beautiful game." You will be chanting and singing along and barely even need to use your seat as move after move will have you jumping up and cheering for the home country. Perhaps at no other time will you have felt so proudly to cheer for the United States and felt patriotism as deeply as when you are in the stadium with thousands of fellow Americans cheering on the women's national team.
Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF as it is usually called, was formed in 1961 and became one of the six continental governing bodies acknowledged by FIFA. The U.S. Women's National Team has long dominated CONCACAF and is the only team from the confederation to have won a World Cup. In fact, the U.S. has never finished lower than third in the tournament with two championships, one second place finish, and three third place finishes. Canada and Mexico are the only other CONCACAF women's teams to have made it to the World Cup with Mexico never making it out of the group stage and Canada doing so only once, in 2003 when they finished fourth.
Abby Wambach, who has been with the team since 2001 is the all time leading goal scorer for the U.S. Women's Team while Mia Hamm is the team's all time leader in assists. The most goals scored by a player in a single game is five, which has been accomplished by six players: Brandi Chastain, Abby Wombach, Michelle Akers, Amy Rodriguez, Tiffeny Milbrett, and Sydney Leroux.
