The Volkswagen All-Star Spotlight program is a collaboration between U.S. Soccer and VW to highlight children with a passion for the game. The VW All-Star for the USWNT’s September 16 match against Paraguay is Molly L., who is seven years old from Twinsburg, Ohio. From watching her brother’s games on the sidelines while she was just weeks old to picking up the sport herself in 2017, Molly’s love for the game has only grown with time. She not only tries to be the best player she can by constantly working hard on her skills and soccer knowledge, Molly also works to be the best teammate she can by encouraging and supporting others.
