U.S. player pool
Quick Take: Smallest player on the team at 5-2. She had four goals and two assists in 1999 against Japan, which tied her with Michelle Akers, Brandi Chastain and Mia Hamm for most points in a game with 10. An explosive dribbler and shooter, more than one defender is needed to stop the whippet-quick Milbrett who is one of the world's best at running with the ball at her feet. Possessing incredible acceleration and an uncanny scoring touch, she is the USA's fourth all-time leading scorer with 77 goals. She scored game winners in 1-0 victories over Brazil in the Gold Cup Final and Norway in the DFB Jubilee Cup, but her propensity for big goals was established long ago with three in the 1995 Women's World Cup and the winning goal in the 1996 Olympic Gold medal game. Paired with Hamm, they make the world's most prolific and dangerous striking tandem. Her dynamic, break-neck style have made her a favorite of fans.
