Quick Take: Having taken over as the number one goalkeeper, Mullinix has proved rock solid in the nets and needs just one more shutout this year to break the U.S. record. She was named the best goalkeeper at the 2000 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup and her kicking game ranks among the best in the world. Her play with her feet behind the U.S. back line this year has been stellar. Solid on crosses and brave when the cleats are flying, the emergence of Mullinix gives the USA two starting goalkeepers on the roster.
