WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - She’s a two-time World Cup champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist and arguably scored one of the most significant goals in US soccer history. Brandi Chastain talks with FOX 5’s Holly Morris about the 2019 Women’s World Cup, her iconic penalty kick that won the 1999 World Cup and the advice she gives to young girls playing soccer today.
“This World Cup is unlike any other World Cup. We’ve seen multiple teams who have never been (to the World Cup) have qualified,” Chastain said. “I think it’s going to be a nail-bitter Word Cup.”
Chastain believes Team USA can win the title this year but is keeping a close eye on England, Australia, Japan, Brazil, Germany and 2019 World Cup-host France. Her three players to watch for Team USA are Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Julie Ertz.
“Those three players will be the foundation for a good, solid World-Cup tournament,” Chastain explained.
