And they're a pretty badass group of individuals.

Ranked second going into the tournament, this squad includes a strong variety of seasoned veterans (such as Rampone, Boxx, and Wambach) and up-and-coming rookies (such as Brian and Johnston) all of whom are collectively hungry to bring the trophy back to the U.S. for the first time in 16 years. If there's a team to do it, it's this one.
