Can you guess which goal was number one on our list of the Top 10 plays? The NWSL Fall Series has come to an end.
Becky Sauerbrunn joins teammate and friend Kelley O’Hara to discuss her historic career anchoring the USWNT defense. Becky and Kelley start by reflecting on the national team’s final match of 2020 against the Netherlands, before jumping back in time to re-trace Becky’s journey from being her older brothers’ guinea pig to becoming the first-ever president of the USWNT Players Association. Becky discusses what it means to be an introverted leader on a team full of extroverts, how she’s overcome the doubts of certain national team coaches, the work ethic that led her to win four NWSL Defender of the Year awards, and what made the 2019 World Cup a tournament like no other.
