PHILADELPHIA (Tuesday, September 23, 2003) - Midfielder Shannon Boxx became the first uncapped player in the history of the U.S. Women’s National Team to make a Women’s World Cup Team, then scored in her first two international games, only the third U.S. female player ever to achieve that feat. Against Sweden on Sept. 21, she made history, scoring the clinching third U.S. goal in the 3-1 victory over Sweden in the opening game of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2003, making her the first-ever female player to score in her first three international matches. During the Women’s World Cup, she will share her unique perspective and experiences in a special diary feature for www.ussoccer.com’s U.S. Women’s National Team Plus!, titled, "The Soap Boxx.".
