2013 was good to the United States women’s national team.
In their first year with coach Tom Sermanni, the squad was undefeated, posting an impressive 13-0-3 record last year. Not too shabby.
Individuals on the team had incredible years as well. Abby Wambach surpassed Mia Hamm’s all-time scoring record. Sydney Leroux sealed her spot as the next USWNT star.
And on Tuesday, beloved striker Alex Morgan and fierce goalkeeper Hope Solo got some recognition their own: they were nominated by AskMen.com voters as two of the Top 99 Women of 2014.
Here’s to another amazing year that leads up to a very important one: 2015, and the Women’s World Cup.
