The U.S. Women’s National Team will go for its third World Cup title, and first since 1999, on Sunday when they take on Japan in a rematch of 2011’s heartbreaking final loss in penalty kicks – and plenty of former NCAA student-athletes will be representing for Team USA.
The biggest contributor to the squad is the University of North Carolina, which can boast six of the team’s 23 members: Meghan Klingenberg, Tobin Heath, Ashlyn Harris, Whitney Engen, Heather O’Reilly and Lori Chalupny.
We also hear from former Rutgers standout Carli Lloyd, who has scored three goals over the U.S. team’s last three games.
