Glamour’s Women of the Year: USWNT

001

The women of the U.S. national soccer team are Women of the Year because… “These amazing, strong, confident women inspired thousands of girls to dream big. And they helped bring all of us together—one nation, one team.”
Mia Hamm, former pro soccer player, World Cup champ, Olympic gold medalist, and 1999 and 2010 Woman of the Year

Every summer has an anthem, a song that captures the cultural mood of that moment in time. This year that anthem didn’t come from Taylor Swift or Katy Perry. It was the galvanizing chant—”I believe that we will win!”—of the U.S. national team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. The 23 players on the team chanted it before games during the grueling month-long tournament. Fans screamed it in the stands. And girls and boys cheered it in living rooms around the globe: “I believe that we will win!”

Well, the team didn’t just win; they dominated, toppling Australia, Nigeria, Colombia, China, and Germany before heading into the championship match against Japan—at which point things got epic. Three minutes in, midfielder Carli Lloyd, 33, executed a precision-perfect goal off a corner kick. Two minutes later she scored again. Midfielder Lauren Holiday, 28, scored at minute 14. And just 85 seconds later, in a stunning shot, Lloyd rifled the ball into Japan’s net from halfway across the field. The Telemundo sportscaster yelled “Goal!” for 38 seconds.

But soccer is a sport in which outcomes can turn on a dime. “We had to make sure we were focused for 75 more minutes,” says forward Alex Morgan, 26. It wasn’t until the clock read 89 minutes and 59 seconds, with a score of 5 to 2, that the women started to celebrate. “When the final whistle blew, something I’d dreamed of and been working for tirelessly my whole life came true,” says forward Abby Wambach, who at age 35 has scored more international goals (183 and counting) than any soccer player in history, male or female. “I felt every emotion you can imagine: joy, love, excitement, relief.”
