Product Overview

On a July afternoon in 1999, the United States's proudest moment in soccer occurred in Pasadena, California. In the presence of more than 90,000 fans and viewed by another 40 million on television, the United States women outlasted China to win the World Cup. Although the United States has lagged far behind other countries in regard to the men's game, it has been at the forefront when it comes to women's soccer.

In The U.S. Women's Soccer Team: An American Success Story, Clemente A. Lisi examines how the sport has gained popularity over the past few decades. While other books have been written about the team during a specific year, such as those focused solely on the World Cup win on U.S., soil, Lisi looks beyond this event, detailing the program's in fancy and how it steadily became a model for women's teams around the globe.

Beginning with the start of the U.S. Program in 1985, Lisi recounts the development of the team, highlighting their two first-place finishes in the Women's World Cups (1991 and 1999) and three Olympic gold medals (1996, 2004, and 2008). In addition to chronicling the history of the team as a whole, The U.S. Women's Soccer Team: An American Success Story offers mini profiles and photographs of some of the best players over the years, including Julic Foudy, Amy Rodriguez, Hope Solo, and Mia Hamm.
