Becky Sauerbrunn ‘would faint’ if she ever scored for USWNT

Becky Sauerbrunn has come close to scoring for the U.S. women’s national team, but has never quite found the back of the net. Thus, her 217-game scoreless streak continues – a record for the USWNT.

That doesn’t mean the 38-year-old defender isn’t thinking about it. After all, she nearly scored in her hometown of Saint Louis earlier this year. But if she ever did find the back of the net, she isn’t sure she would be able to appreciate the moment.

“Alana [Cook] and I were like, we can switch every once in a while, so we were taking turns going up there,” she said after Thursday’s 0-0 draw with Colombia. “I mean, one of these days I think it might happen. If it happens, it happens.”

And Sauerbrunn doesn’t have a celebration picked out for if that day comes.

“I think I would faint,” she said. “I don’t think it would be a celebration.”
