Ali Krieger was the only American player at the 2011 Women’s World Cup plying her trade for a club outside the United States. She was with FFC Frankfurt at the time, the club where she won a 2008 UEFA Women’s Champions League title.
Krieger played in WPS briefly on loan with the Washington Freedom in 2009 and played the entire 2013 National Women’s Soccer League season with the Washington Spirit. Now she is in Sweden, playing with Tyresö FF, a team into the Round of 16 in the Champions league.
So Krieger, a 29-year-old right back, has a unique perspective on soccer at the highest level – and different types of high levels. U.S. Soccer recently spoke with her about exactly that: Her time in all three leagues, and how she thinks they all compare.
