The U.S. team has proved quite popular with the Canadian media so far (and thanks also to the several American journalists in town!). Of course, the U.S. playes obliged with many interviews which of course serve to promote the game, the team and the tournament. Above, Becky Sauerbrunn gives her thoughts on various soccer topics.
No one does more interviews than Abby Wambach. And she always keeps it real. Wambach infamously missed the 2008 Olympics with a broken leg so is highly motivated to get to London. Who are we kidding? Abby's always highly motivated, whether it's a qualifying match, a game of crossbar or checkers.
U.S. forward Sydney Leroux, who was born and raised in Vancouver before changing affiliations in 2008 (her dad is American) had been quite the popular interview subject since coming back to her hometown. She's shown a few U.S. players around town and we think her Canadian accent is even coming out a bit more. Said Leroux: "I love Canada, I love Vancouver, this will always be my home." Hopefully the once-capped Leroux, who starred at UCLA and for the U.S. Under-20s, will get a chance to play in front of family and friends during the tournament.
