U.S. Women's Team by Illugi Jokulsson

World Soccer Legends series for young readers Everything you need to know about most exciting clubs and the best players on the planet. U.S. Women's Team Learn all about the U.S. Women's National Team, the winner of the first ever Women's World Cup, which made soccer superstars of Mia Hamm and Brandi Chastain. In the six FIFA Women's World Cups since 1991, the U.S. Team, founded in 1985, has won twice, placed second once, and placed third three times. Now led by head coach Jill Ellis, the team will feature current stars Alex Morgan, Amy Wambach, and Hope Solo in the 2015 World Cup.


Praise for the World Soccer Legends Series: These books address a largely unfilled niche: short, highly readable biographies of contemporary soccer stars. The texts are printed over and around voluminous, richly printed photographs and include many pages of scoring statistics and league standings. --School Library Journal These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it's like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun! --Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO) These books in the World Soccer Legends [series], newly translated into English, will appeal mainly to young hardcore soccer fans. Such readers cannot get enough of the action photographs, copious statistics, and player profiles that fill the books. --Booklist
