Quotes from the news wire:
After much deliberation and talking with my friends, family, teammates and our coaching staff, I've decided to finally bring my soccer career to an end, while we still have more work to do for women's soccer, after bringing the World Cup back to the United States this summer, I'm feeling extremely optimistic about the future of our sport.
I think that in order to win a World Cup we all have to give up a little bit of our own selves to be able to do that and I think checking your ego at the door is probably one of the biggest and important keys to winning a world championship, we have some stars, but I think it's going to be important that no matter who is on the field that we've created a bond and a chemistry that is unwavering and something we can hold on to throughout the World Cup.
I feel like I'm coming along. I feel like I haven't been my very best playing self over the past year and a half, for different reasons. I think as you grow older you have figure out the best way to utilize not only your body but your skill. Playing on turf makes it a little more difficult because it's more of a grind, so to speak, but I do know that come June I'll be my fittest and hopefully be playing my very best soccer.
The fact that they would trade for me knowing that I wasn't going to play, that meant a lot. I think I'm going to head to Seattle a few days a week, get some time with the Reign, get some individual sessions with Laura (Harvey), their coach, and stay sharp that way. For me, fitness is always an evolution, but I'm going to be 100 percent ready when the World Cup starts.
