I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.
I could sit there and eat pasta all day long and not worry about it when I was younger, and now I really have to focus on making sure I set a good example for my kids.
You may get skinned knees and elbows, but it's worth it if you score a spectacular goal.
Being a good teammate is when you try to sprint down a ball that everyone thinks is going out of bounds. But you go after it anyways and you get it.
I am happy that the young girls have a lot more choices these days and an opportunity to feel better about themselves.
I hope all you young girls see yourself up there... we were just like you.
If you don't love what you do, you won't do it with much conviction or passion.
Follow your heart and make it your decision.
I am building a fire, and everyday I train, I add more fuel. At just the right moment, I light the match.
Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don't settle for them.
The person that said winning isn't everything, never won anything.
The vision of a champion is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion, when nobody else is looking.
Soccer isn't very social. Plus, if you don't like someone on the other team, you can do something about it.
True champions aren't always the ones that win, but those with the most guts.
You can't just beat a team, you have to leave a lasting impression in their minds so they never want to see you again.
Failure happens all the time. It happens every day in practice. What makes you better is how you react to it.
There are always new, grander challenges to confront, and a true winner will embrace each one.
It is not sacrifice if you love what you're doing.
Success breeds success.
I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.
