Alexandra Blaire Krieger is an American soccer player and FIFA Women’s World Cup champion. Primarily a defender, she is a member of the United States women’s national soccer team and currently captains the Washington Spirit of the National Women’s Soccer League, the highest division of women’s soccer in the United States. She first appeared for the United States national team at the 2008 Four Nations Tournament during a match against Canada on January 16, 2008. She has since made 93 total appearances for the team.

Krieger has represented the United States at two FIFA Women’s World Cups: 2011 in Germany and 2015 in Canada. She was part of the defense that held opponents scoreless for a record 540 minutes and helped lead the United States to become 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup champions. She started in all seven matches for the United States in the 2015 tournament, and she played every minute of all six United States matches at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup. In 2012, Krieger sustained a serious knee injury during the 2012 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying tournament and did not recover in time to be selected to the 2012 Olympic Team.

Before joining the Washington Spirit in 2013, Krieger played professional soccer for the Washington Freedom, 1. FFC Frankfurt of Germany’s Frauen-Bundesliga, and Tyresö FF of Sweden’s Damallsvenskan. During her five years with FFC Frankfurt, she won the UEFA Women’s Champions League and was the only player on the United States women’s national team that played overseas.

whats the best USWNT game out there to rewatch

USA vs Brazil - 2011 World Cup
USA vs Germany - 2015 World Cup
Algarve Cup 2015 - Most notably the match against France because the ref is awful and the player reactions are hilarious.

USA vs CAN. 2012 Olympic Semifinal. 

More recently I liked the first U.S vs Brazil match in the 2015 Victory tour. Not as much excitement as a championship match, but the U.S goes down a goal and has to fight back.
