Since 2018, she co-captains her national team alongside Carli Lloyd & Alex Morgan. Rapinoe is internationally known for her crafty style of play & her precise cross to Abby Wambach in the 122nd minute of the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup quarterfinals against Brazil, which resulted in an equalizer goal & eventual win for the Americans after a penalty shootout. During the 2012 London Olympics, she scored three goals & tallied a team-high four assists to lead the United States to a gold medal. She is the first player, male or female, to score a goal directly from a corner at the Olympic Games. in the final of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on July 7, Rapinoe scored a penalty kick as the United States defeated the Netherlands by a score of 2–0. in doing so, Rapinoe became the oldest woman to score in a World Cup final & secured the Golden Boot award as the top scorer in the tournament with six goals. She was also named player of the match. Rapinoe also earned the Golden Ball award as the best player at the tournament.
