Known for being an ego-free team player, Sauerbrunn holds down her teammates as the anchor of whatever team she plays. Growing up in St. Louis, Becky became a regular on the U.S. Youth National Teams. When she was forced to choose between multiple obligations, Becky chose to help the team she knew she could help win.
Over the last decade, Becky has maintained her status as one of the most influential players in the NWSL. For three consecutive years (2013-2015), Becky was named NWSL Defender of the Year. Becky is perhaps most known for her World Cup championships. In the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Sauerbrunn played every minute of the entire 7 match tournament. In the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Becky helped bring home the championship for the United States a fourth time.
Becky says there’s no worse insult in the world than being told she’s not a team player. She is committed to the team mentality and putting aside her own glory, so her team can keep winning.
