MORGAN NAMED 2012 U.S. SOCCER FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEAR
U.S. Soccer announced U.S. Women’s National Team forward Alex Morgan as the 2012 Female Athlete of the Year and U.S. Under-20 WNT defender Julie Johnston as the 2012 Young Female Athlete of the Year. The Female Athlete of the Year award is the first for Morgan, who leads all U.S. WNT players this year in goals (28) and assists (19) with three matches remaining. Her goals total ranks third all-time for a calendar year behind only Abby Wambach (31 goals in 2004) and Michelle Akers (39 goals in 1991).


MORGAN ON BRINK OF EXCLUSIVE 20-20 CLUB
With each passing game in 2012, Alex Morgan continues to join elite company in the record books. Morgan is one assist away from joining 2007 National Soccer Hall of Famer Mia Hamm in the exclusive 20-20 club. Hamm currently is the only U.S. WNT player to have ever accomplished the feat of 20 goals and 20 assists in a calendar year (she finished exactly on 20 and 20), that coming in 1998. Morgan sits at 28 goals and 19 assists in 2012.


UNDER THE ROOF:
The U.S. WNT has played 11 games indoors in its history and is a perfect 11-0-0 in those games. In fact, the USA has outscored its opponents 68-1 indoors. The first indoor game was at the Pontiac Silverdome in Detroit in 1993 as part of a test run for the surface that would be used in the 1994 World Cup. Here are the matches the U.S. Women have played indoors.

U.S. ROSTER NOTES

  • Alex Morgan (28 goals) and Abby Wambach (23 goals) have combined for 51 goals in 2012 – the second-most goals of any duo in U.S. WNT history. The record is 55 goals in 1991 when Michelle Akers scored a record 39 goals and Carin Jennings tallied 16 goals. They have three games left to get four goals to tie or five to break the record.
  • Morgan notched her second-career hat trick on Nov. 28 during the USA’s 5-0 win against the Republic of Ireland. She also scored three goals on March 7 en route to a 4-0 win against Sweden to take third place at the 2012 Algarve Cup. Morgan became the ninth WNT player to record two or more hat tricks.
  • Only four players in U.S. WNT history have scored more than 20 goals in a calendar year: Akers (39 in 1991), Tiffeny Milbrett (21 in 1999), Wambach twice (31 goals in 2004, 23 in 2012) and Morgan (28 in 2012).
  • Lauren Cheney is second behind Morgan in assists with year with 11. Both Heather O’Reilly and Megan Rapinoe have 10 assists.
  • O’Reilly has six goals in 2012, and would need four more to record a “10 and 10” year for the second time in her career. She missed the last match against Republic of Ireland on Dec. 1 with the flu.
  • Five players on the U.S. roster scored in the 2012 London Olympics and eight total players have scored in an Olympics: Wambach (4 goals in 2004; 5 goals in 2012), Carli Lloyd (2 goals in 2008; 4 goals in 2012), Heather O’Reilly (1 goal in 2004; 2 goals in 2008), Shannon Boxx (1 goal in 2004), Amy Rodriguez (1 goal in 2008), Morgan (3 goals in 2012), Megan Rapinoe (3 goals in 2012) and Sydney Leroux (1 goal in 2012).
  • The London Olympics marked the first time the U.S. WNT won every game en route to the gold medal.
  • Rapinoe and Morgan led the team with four assists apiece in the Olympics.
  • Morgan, Rapinoe and Wambach each had 10 points in this year’s Olympics.
  • Only three U.S. WNT players were on the field for all 570 minutes in the 2012 Olympics: goalkeeper Hope Solo, defender and team captain Christie Rampone and defender Kelley O’Hara.
  • Morgan’s game-winning goal against Canada on Aug. 6 is the latest tally ever in a FIFA competition. Her strike hit the back of the net at 122 minutes, 23 seconds. Wambach’s memorable game-tying header against Brazil in the quarterfinals of the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup crossed the goal line at 121 minutes, 19 seconds.
  • The USA has scored 110 goals this year (108 individual goals, 2 own goals), ranking fourth all-time in the program’s history. The 2000 campaign ranks first with 124 goals in 41 games, followed by 1991 (122 goals in 28 games) and 1999 (111 goals in 29 games).



U.S. WNT IN DETROIT

  • The U.S. has played twice in Detroit and won on both occasions: a 3-0 victory against Canada on June 21, 1993, at the Pontiac Silverdome, and a 1-0 win against China PR on Dec. 18, 2008, at Ford Field. Those two games also are the only times the USA has played in the state of Michigan and both were indoors, like the match on Dec. 8 vs. China.
  • In the 2008 win against China, Heather O’Reilly scored the game’s lone goal in the 34th minute as the U.S. was in the midst of a post-Olympic tour celebrating the team’s gold medal performance at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.
  • The 1993 victory against Canada marked the first indoor game in U.S. Soccer history. Joy Fawcett scored two goals and Michele Akers also contributed a goal. The indoor grass was the same playing surface that was to be used one year later in the 1994 FIFA Men’s World Cup as the U.S. Women gave it a test run.
  • The USA has had two prominent players from the state of Michigan in Lindsay Tarpley (Kalamazoo) and Kate Markgraf (Bloomfield Hills), who both played prominent roles in helping the USA win multiple world championships. Markgraf is retired, while Tarpley recently had a baby and is still recovering from a major knee injury suffered in the run up to the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup.



USA vs. CHINA PR SERIES

  • The U.S. holds a 17-game unbeaten streak against China PR with a 14-0-3 record dating back to a 2-0 victory on March 20, 2003, in Loule, Portugal.
  • Overall, the U.S. Women are 26-8-12 in the series that started with a 2-1 win on July 20, 1986. During that span, the U.S. has a 72-33 scoring margin.
  • The U.S. famously defeated China 5-4 in a shootout during the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup on July 10 in Pasadena, Calif. Brandi Chastain tallied the game-ending penalty kick.
  • The USA won on its home soil against China in the first-ever Olympics in which women’s soccer was featured, earning a 2-1 victory in the gold medal game on Aug. 1, 1996 at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. Shannon MacMillan had the game-opening goal and Tiffeny Milbrett scored the eventual game-winner midway through the second half.
  • The last time the U.S. and China met, Alex Morgan scored twice and the USA overcame an early deficit to post a 4-1 win in front of a sellout crowd of 18,573 at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. Abby Wambach added a goal and the U.S. benefited from an own goal by Zhou Gaoping.



IN THE RECORD BOOKS

  • U.S. forward Amy Rodriguez is one appearance away from 100 for her career, and if she plays in Detroit on Saturday she will become the 29th U.S. WNT player to reach the century club. Rodriguez has eight goals this year off the bench and has logged 825 minutes, four starts and 26 total appearances.
  • U.S. defender and team captain Christie Rampone recently took sole possession of third place all-time in career caps with her 273rd appearance during the team’s 2-0 win against the Republic of Ireland on Dec. 1 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. Rampone surpassed Julie Foudy (272) and is now two caps behind Mia Hamm (275). Kristine Lilly holds the record with 352 caps.
  • Carli Lloyd is two games away from earning her 150th career cap which would make her one of 17 players to reach that plateau.
  • Rampone has 22 career Olympic appearances and moved six ahead of previous USA record holders Joy Fawcett, Foudy, Lilly and Kate Markgraf.
  • Abby Wambach scored five goals in five straight games during the London Olympics, which is an Olympic record. She has nine-career Olympic goals and is atop the USA leaderboard in that category, surpassing the previous record of five held by Hamm and Milbrett.
  • Alex Morgan’s 75 points (28 goals, 19 assists) are tied for second-most for a WNT player in a calendar year. Wambach had 75 points in 2004 (31 goals, 13 assists) and Michelle Akers had 86 points in 1991 (39 goals, 8 assists).
  • Hope Solo has 100 wins in 131 appearances over her 13 years with the U.S. WNT and is second only to Briana Scurry, who had 133 wins in 173 appearances. Solo also has 23 wins this year, matching her career high in 2008 when she was 23-1-0.
  • Solo set a U.S. WNT goalkeeper consecutive minutes played record at 1,163 earlier this year, surpassing the previous mark of 990 set by Scurry.
  • Sydney Leroux continues to improve her U.S. WNT record for goals scored off the bench in a year with 12 goals in 2012. She scored two second-half goals during the USA’s 5-0 win against Ireland on Nov. 28. Leroux broke the previous bench scoring record of nine goals originally set by Debbie Keller in 1998.
  • Nicole Barnhart earned her 45th cap on Dec. 1, which ties her with Siri Mullinix (45 caps from 1999-2004) for third among U.S. WNT goalkeepers. One of Barnhart’s caps was as a field player.

OLYMPIC GOLD OVER THE YEARS:
The Fan Tribute Tour embraces a U.S. Women’s National Team that has set a standard in the Olympics. No soccer team – men’s or women’s – has won four Olympic gold medals. Here is a look at all four gold medal-winning performances:

  • Aug. 9, 2012: USA 2, Japan 1: U.S. midfielder Carli Lloyd, the gold medal hero of the 2008 Olympics, once again led the way for the USA by scoring both goals to upend 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup champion Japan in front of more than 80,000 spectators at Wembley Stadium in London – an Olympic record crowd for women’s soccer and the largest crowd the U.S. WNT has played in front of outside the United States. Lloyd made a darting run in the eighth minute, heading home the game’s first goal. Then Lloyd unleashed a right-footed shot from 20 yards out in the 54th minute for what would prove to be the winning tally.
  • Aug. 24, 2008: USA 1, Brazil 0 (OT): The U.S. held Brazil scoreless for 120 minutes and Carli Lloyd took the spotlight with a game-winning goal in the sixth minute of overtime in front of 51,612 at Worker’s Stadium in Beijing. Lloyd’s left-footed strike from just outside the box was the finishing touch for the USA’s third gold medal in four Olympic Games. Goalkeeper Hope Solo made six saves for the clean sheet.
  • Aug. 26, 2004: USA 2, Brazil 1 (OT): Abby Wambach’s snap header from about 12 yards out in the 112th minute flew past Brazil goalkeeper Andreia for the winner as the young Wambach capitalized on Kristine Lilly’s corner kick. Lindsay Tarpley gave the USA a first-half lead in the 39th minute and Brazil’s Pretinha equalized in the 73rd minute. The Athens Olympics served as the final international championship for retiring players such as Joy Fawcett, Julie Foudy and Mia Hamm.
  • Aug. 1, 1996: USA 2, China PR 1: Tiffeny Milbrett scored off of a strong setup from Joy Fawcett in the 68th minute to give the USA its first gold medal in front of 76,481 at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. Fawcett attacked down the right side into the penalty area, drew a China defender and slid the ball to a wide open Milbrett. Shannon MacMillan scored the first goal in the 19th minute, rebounding Mia Hamm’s initial shot that was saved by China goalkeeper Hong Gao and deflected off the post. China’s Lihong Zhao tied the score at 1-1 in the 32nd minute.


JILL ELLIS FACT FILE:
Interim head coach Jill Ellis has managed four games for the U.S. Women’s National Team, compiling a 2-0-2 record as she manages the team for the remainder of 2012 before Tom Sermanni takes the reins at the start of 2013. The 46-year-old Ellis was appointed as the Development Director for the U.S. Women’s National Teams in January of 2011. She oversees the women’s youth national team program at the U-14, U-15 and U-17 levels. Below are some of her accomplishments as a player and coach.

  • She also had two stints as the head coach of the U.S. U-21 WNT, the second starting in the middle of 2005, after which she guided the team to the Nordic Cup in Sweden. Ellis also coached the U-21s to the Nordic Cup title in Germany in 2000.
  • Ellis spent 12 years as the head coach of the UCLA women’s team, leading the Bruins to eight NCAA Final Fours, including seven in a row from 2003-09. She won six straight conference titles (2003-08) and compiled a 229-45-14 record.
  • She also was the head coach at the University of Illinois in 1997 and 1998.
  • Ellis grew up in Portsmouth, England, and came to the U.S. in 1981 at age 15. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of William & Mary in 1988.
