WNT vs England Highlights May 9 1997

Mia Hamm scores a hat trick for the U.S. Women's National Team on May 9, 1997 in a game televised nationally on ESPN. Hamm's goals (including the wonderful third) and the team's great performance helped expose the USA to a national audience in the buildup to the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup. Shannon MacMillan and Julie Foudy were also on the scoresheet for the USA at Spartan Stadium in San Jose, Calif.
