The multi-talented U.S. forward Christen Press says the build-up to what is likely to be her first World Cup is emotional to think about. She spoke about that with Telemundo, while also revealing her favorite men’s league and team are. Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? Press dishes on her favorite player between the two world elites.

Press speaks English, Spanish and Swedish. She played for two years in Sweden for Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC and Tyresö FF — losing the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League final — after playing for a season in WPS with magicJack. Press now plays for the Chicago Red Stars.

Press didn’t debut for the U.S. senior team until last year, but in two full years with the squad thus far, she scored 15 goals in 32 appearances.
