Quick Take: The silky smooth midfielder burst onto the scene this year following a stellar career at Santa Clara University and stuck in the lineup with a combination of extraordinary ball skills, a solid heading presence and a rocket shot. She scored the tying goal in a 1-1 draw against Norway on July 27 in Tromso and her first career hat trick against Costa Rica on June 25 in an 8-0 romp. One of the best passers on the team, her ability to strike a ball accurately over 50 yards brings a valuable dimension to the U.S. attack.
