10. Megan Rapinoe — 63

A member of the USWNT since 2006, Rapinoe has made an impact on and off the field. She became the only player to score an Olimpico in two Olympic Games when she added one in the USWNT’s bronze-medal win in Tokyo.

9. Christen Press — 64

Press has been a senior national team staple since 2013, but she was left off the 2022 World Cup qualifying roster. Her first two career goals came during a 2013 friendly against Scotland. Her 64th goal came in a 4-1 win over New Zealand during the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

8. Cindy Parlow Cone — 75

The current president of U.S. Soccer spent 11 years with the USWNT, spanning three Olympics and two World Cups. She scored her first two goals in her first appearance during a friendly against Russia in 1996. Parlow also recorded seven career hat tricks for the USWNT, just one behind Mia Hamm for most all-time.

7. Tiffeny Milbrett — 100

Starting out with the USWNT in 1991, Milbrett scored her first international goal in 1992 against Norway. She went on to lead the team to Olympic gold in 1996, scoring the game-winning goal against China. Her 100th and final goal came in a 2005 friendly against the Ukraine in her hometown of Portland, Ore.

6. Michelle Akers — 105

A member of the USWNT from 1985-2000, Akers scored the first goal in the team’s history in the U.S.’s second-ever international game against Denmark. She also led all scorers in the inaugural FIFA Women’s World Cup in 1991 with 10 goals, including five in one game. Akers led the USWNT to their first World Cup that year, scoring both goals in a 2-1 defeat of Norway in the final.

5. Alex Morgan — 119

One of three active players on this list, Morgan has been a member of the USWNT since 2010. Morgan’s goal in the 123rd minute of the 2012 Olympic semifinals, which delivered the U.S. the win over Canada, still holds the record for the latest goal ever scored by a USWNT player.

4. Kristine Lilly — 130

A member of the USWNT for 23 years, Lilly is the most capped player in the history of the sport, male or female. In total, she has 12 goals spanning five World Cups and three Olympics. She scored her final goal against Germany in 2010, making her the oldest and youngest player ever to score for the USWNT at the time.

3. Carli Lloyd — 134

Lloyd’s five-goal performance to begin her farewell tour in 2021 tied the USWNT’s single-game scoring record. The star forward always seems to find the right time to score, ending her career with two game-winners in the Olympics and a hat trick in the 2015 World Cup final. That performance was one of the most brilliant in the history of the sport, with Lloyd scoring the first-ever hat trick in a World Cup final in just 16 minutes.

2. Mia Hamm — 158

Hamm was a USWNT staple, holding the record for most international goals scored until Wambach surpassed her in 2013. She remains third on the all-time list behind Wambach and Sinclair. A member of the USWNT’s inaugural Women’s World Cup and Olympic teams, Hamm played an astounding 17 years for the USWNT. Her 158th and final goal came during a 2004 friendly against Australia.

1. Abby Wambach — 184

Wambach tops the list after an illustrious 14-year career with the USWNT. Her 184 goals will likely stay No. 1 for a long time. She’s also in second place for most international goals scored, behind Canada’s Christine Sinclair. A tour de force on the big stage, Wambach scored 14 times in World Cup tournaments and 24 times in the Olympics. Her final goal came during a 2015 friendly against Costa Rica.
