Andi Sullivan is taking advantage of the moment.
While her journey to the U.S. women’s national team has been riddled with injuries, Sullivan has kept pushing. Against Paraguay in September, she scored her first two international goals for the USWNT.
On Tuesday, Sullivan factored heavily into the team’s 6-0 win over Korea Republic. She anchored the midfield and helped secure an own goal off Korea in the 45th minute to give the USWNT a 2-0 lead.

The game was Carli Lloyd’s last with the USWNT, marking the start of a new era centered on the younger generation, including the 25-year-old Sullivan.
“It’s been an emotional couple of weeks, and has sparked a lot of reflection and a lot of memories, a lot of conversations, and a lot of talks about the future,” she said. “Right now, I feel like we’re really enjoying this moment.”
