USWNT All-Time Best XI

Last updated

In December 2013, the USWNT All-Time Best XI was named by the United States Soccer Federation. [1] A committee of 56 former soccer players and administrators, as well as media members, voted for the team. 11 United States women's national soccer team players were chosen, with results leaning heavily toward the team that won the 1999 World Cup. Mia Hamm and Joy Fawcett were unanimously voted into the Best XI, while Alex Morgan, the team’s youngest player (24), was named on 15 ballots. [2] [3]
