    BuzzFeed caught up with the soccer star to talk about being a bride, having kids, and her future with USWNT.

    It's been a big year for USWNT Forward Sydney Leroux— after winning the World Cup and nursing an ankle injury, she's currently planning her wedding to MLS player Dom Dwyer.

    We caught up with Leroux at the EA Sports FIFA 16 launch party to talk about her soccer future, wedding plans, and her love for Beyonce.

    "She was the one to really take me under her wing, and show me the ropes, so it makes sense to have her there on the most special day of my life," she says.

    AND she wants Lupe Fiasco to perform at the ceremony.

    "He said 'if you can get me there, I'll come' and I was like 'well you might be flying coach but let's do it!'" Leroux told us.

    After getting surgery on her ankle in July, Leroux says she had a glimpse of what life would be like without soccer.

    She tells BuzzFeed that she hopes to play in the Olympics and the next World Cup but "would like to have some kids in between there."

    "And then I definitely want to come back and play, for sure," she says.

    Although she can't imagine a life without soccer....
