Krieger to be honored before USWNT match vs. China PR on December 5

On December 5, two-time World Cup Champion Ali Krieger will be honored for her contributions to the USWNT and the women’s game before a national team friendly against China PR in Frisco, Texas. Krieger, who announced her retirement from professional soccer earlier this year, experienced her last “first” at the end of the 2023 NWSL season – winning the NWSL championship for the first and only time with her team, NJ/NY Gotham FC. In addition to winning the only prize that eluded her, Krieger finishes her career with a list of other accolades. Krieger not only helped the USWNT secure two World Cup victories (2015 and 2019), but she also made 108 total appearances for the United States, and appeared with the USWNT in the 2011 World Cup as well as the 2016 Olympics. Krieger also had an impressive club career, playing in 200 NWSL matches over 11 seasons, finishing her career as fourth-all time in regular season minutes, per US Soccer. Kickoff on December 5 will be at 7pm CT.
