Hope is here!
How do you keep your confidence high when you're having a bad game or practice?
For me, I watch video and then I go out and train my butt off. My training is what gives me my confidence.
Do you think finding new ways or things to improve your training, like working with hyperice, will help increase the longevity of your career?
Absolutely. I also believe that athletes of tomorrow will continue to break records because of new products like Hyperice.
How are you physically and mentally preparing for the Women's World Cup?
I keep my bubble really small. I turn off the social media. I really focus on the World Cup team, my teammates, the staff. I solely focus on our first game or our training. Everything is eat, sleep, breath soccer as I prepare myself.
Should Landon Donovan have made the World Cup roster?
I am absolutely heart broken that he did not make it. In my opinion, he is one of the top 23 players in our country.
What do you see as the biggest challenge that could prevent the US women from winning it all year?
Our biggest challenges are going to be the quality of our team defending. We are going to score goals, we just have to make sure that we prevent opponents from scoring.
What do you attribute to Seattle Reign FC success?
Even though we had a losing season last year, we in no way acted like a losing team in the locker room. I think that translated to our current season as well as our organization and ownership and our coach making the proper changes to making a well rounded team in all positions.
How do you think the USMNT will do in the group stage of the World Cup?
I am hoping they get that first win against Ghana. I think they can and will. However, I don't think they're going to beat Portugal or Germany, although I think it will be a great game, US v. Germany.
What would it mean to you personally to win World Cup in 2015?
There are no words for it. I dreamed of not only playing in the World Cup, but also winning the Cup, since I could first write. I wrote a paper when I was 12 saying I wanted to win the Cup. It would be a culmination of my life's work.
What's you're favorite thing about playing with the Seattle Reign?
Being in Seattle! I am dedicated to growing soccer in the beautiful city that I love.
How do you keep focus/calm in a match, when it's not going your teams way?
Knowing that a goalkeeper can not win games, however a goalkeeper can save games.
I'm a 14 year old girl trying out for a club team today and I've never played club before, I'm really nervous, any advice that would help me?
To fulfill your dreams, one has to stay focused even when the chips are down and people tell you you can't, even when there are distractions, the most important things are to stay focused on the goal in the end.
Before a major tournament would you rather be playing games weekly or building chemistry with the national team?
Building chemistry with the national team.
I believe that our U.S. team plays the best soccer when we spend a good amount of time together for a tournament at the highest of levels. It's important to know your teammates inside and out, their tendencies on the field as well as build camaraderie.
What's your favorite save from your career?
From a goalkeeper's standpoint, one of the most technically saves I've made has not always been looked at the most impactful. It was a save against Japan in the 2012 Olympics, when I tipped the ball over the bar. However, I get the most recognition for my saves both in 2008 and 2011.
Which part of the hyperice is more important for your recovery, the compression part or the icing?
The combined effects of both the ice and compression are equally important and they helped me get back from my shoulder injury.
Which USWNT teammate plays the best pranks?
Heather Mitts, although she is retired.
What is your favorite post game meal?
Nothing in particular, however, I love to enjoy a nice dinner with my friends and family after a game.
What do you love the most about being goalie?
I love the pressure of being a goalkeeper. Pressure comes in big moments and big games. The worst part are games when we're not put under pressure in games, which is the majority of our games with the U.S. team since we are the No. 1 team in the world. I live for pressure.
What excites you about the current USWNT team?
Our potential to win the World Cup trophy next summer in Canada.
My fans are the best! They always have my back. Keep following our pursuit next summer in the World Cup.
