“American Woman,” part of Nike Soccer’s #NoMaybes campaign, features Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, Sydney Leroux, Carli Lloyd, Christen Press and Megan Rapinoe. The film captures their journey from training to match day.
Before they ever step onto a pitch surrounded by thousands of screaming fans, U.S. Women’s National Team players go through hours of preparation, both alone and alongside their teammates. When training gets tough, they feed off motivation from each other and, in turn, motivate other players. Taking the field at the Women’s World Cup, they carry their own championship dreams and bear the hopes of fans across the country.
“You have to have a team mentality with the competitiveness of the individual,” said U.S. Women’s National Team captain, Abby Wambach. “You want to make sure that everyone around you has the same mentality and then enmesh those individualities. We are masters of controlling ourselves and bringing out the best in each other.”
