midfielder is an association football position. Midfielders are generally positioned on the field between their team's defenders and forwards. Some midfielders play a disciplined defensive role, breaking up attacks, and are otherwise known as defensive midfielders. Others blur the boundaries, being more mobile and efficient in passing: they are commonly referred to as deep-lying midfielders, play-makers, box-to-box, or holding midfielders. The number of midfielders on a team and their assigned roles depends on the team's formation; the collective group of these players on the field is sometimes referred to as the midfield.

O'Hara was drafted third overall by FC Gold Pride at the 2010 WPS Draft. In addition to the close proximity of home stadium Pioneer Stadium to O'Hara's alma mater Stanford University, O'Hara had previously worked with FC Gold Pride head coach Albertin Montoya when he served as an assistant coach at Stanford University in 2008. [14]

The team dominated the season [15] finishing first during the regular season after defeating the Philadelphia Independence 4–1 with goals from O'Hara, Christine Sinclair and Marta. [16] As the regular season champion, the team earned a direct route to the championship playoff game where they faced the Philadelphia Independence. [17] [18] During the final, FC Gold Pride defeated the Independence 4–0 to clinch the WPS Championship. [19] Despite their successful season, the club ceased operations on November 16, 2010, due to not meeting the league's financial reserve requirement. [15]

After FC Gold Pride folded in November 2010, O'Hara was signed by the Boston Breakers. She scored 10 goals during her two seasons in the WPS playing primarily as an outside midfielder. [11] On January 5, 2012, it was announced O'Hara would be going back to her hometown because she had signed with the Atlanta Beat. However, the league folded just before the 2012 season began.

NWSL: Sky Blue FC, 2013–2017

On January 11, 2013, O'Hara joined Sky Blue FC in the new National Women's Soccer League. Because the club's head coach, Jim Gabarra, intends to play O'Hara as a forward, the converted U.S. WNT outside back reverts to a role she filled with success in college (26 goals and 65 points in her senior season at Stanford, earning her the MAC Hermann Trophy). [20] [21]

Over her career at Sky Blue, O'Hara has been played in several roles including forward, winger, right-back, and central midfielder.[ citation needed ]

Utah Royals FC, 2017-present

On December 29, 2017, O'Hara was traded to Utah Royals FC. [22] Due to a hamstring injury, O'Hara only appeared in 8 games for Utah in 2018. [23]

International career

Youth national teams (2005–2010)

Kelley O'Hara.jpg

O'Hara represented the United States in various youth national teams from 2005 through 2010. [6] She scored 24 goals in her 35 under-20 caps, the third-most ever for a U.S. player in the U-20 age group. [11] She was a member of the fourth-place United States U-20 women's national soccer team that competed in the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women's World Championship in Russia. O'Hara scored two goals in the tournament: one against the Congo (for which game she was named FIFA's player of the match) and one against Germany. She was also the first player in the tournament to be ejected from a game, having picked up two yellow cards in the game against Argentina. [24]

O'Hara rejoined the U-20 national team at the 2007 Pan American Games. She scored four goals in the women's football tournament, against Paraguay, Panama, and Mexico. [25] The United States, which only sent their U-20 women to the tournament, would fall in the final game, 0–5, to a full-strength Brazilian senior team featuring Brazilian powerhouse, Marta.

In February 2008, O'Hara returned to the U-20 women's national team to play in the U-20 Four Nations Tournament in Chile. Her last appearance for the U-20 team occurred in July 2008, at the 2008 CONCACAF Women's U-20 Championship in Puebla, Mexico. [26] O'Hara helped the U-20 team qualify for the 2008 FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup in Chile. She did not play in the U-20 World Cup, instead remaining with her college team in its NCAA postseason campaign.

Senior national team (2008–present)

She was called into the senior national team's training camp in December 2009 and attended the January 2010 training camp in the lead-up to the 2010 Algarve Cup. O'Hara earned her first senior national team cap in March 2010, coming in as a substitute during a friendly match against Mexico.

2011 FIFA Women's World Cup

After falling short of making the 21 player World Cup roster, O'Hara was called up to replace Lindsay Tarpley who tore her ACL in a send-off match against Japan on May 14, 2011. [27] O'Hara earned just one cap at right midfield in the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in the final group stage game against Sweden. The United States went on to win the silver medal in that tournament.

2012 Olympics

Throughout her national U-20s, collegiate, and club career, O'Hara has been one of the top young offensive players in the United States, but under head coach Pia Sundhage, O'Hara was converted to play outside back in 2012 after teammate Ali Krieger went down with an ACL injury in the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament. Against Guatemala on January 22, 2012, in the Olympic Qualifiers, she made her first start at left back and registered three assists. [11] O'Hara made her first start at right back against Costa Rica in the match that qualified the United States for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

She is one of three players on the national team that played every minute for the United States in the Olympic Games. Coincidentally, the other two team members, goalkeeper Hope Solo, and captain Christie Rampone have almost exactly the same statistics; playing all 570 minutes in all six matches and O'Hara and Solo each served one assist.

2015 FIFA Women's World Cup

In the United States' first four games of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, O'Hara did not see any playing time. O'Hara made her first start of the tournament in the quarter-final game against China PR. She was replaced by Christen Press in the 61st minute. [28] O'Hara scored her first career international goal in the United States' 2–0 victory over Germany in the semi-final. [29] In the final against Japan, O'Hara entered the game in the 61st minute to replace Megan Rapinoe. [30] The United States went on to defeat Japan 5–2, winning the first World Cup title since 1999 and the third overall World Cup title for the United States since the inaugural Women's World Cup in 1991.
