Overview

Women's soccer has never been more popular. At the top of the sport's list of star players is Mia Hamm. Her speed, aggressive play, and ability to "read the field" have sparked every team she's ever played on. At the University of North Carolina, she helped the Tar Heels capture four NCAA championships. Her continually stellar performances with the United States national team led them to win two out of three Women's World Cups, first in 1991 and again in 1999. And as a member of the 1996 gold medal-winning Olympic team, she played an outstanding final game on a sprained ankle. The holder of the world record for most goals scored in a career, she is the hero of thousands of soccer fans worldwide. Readers will devour every detail of this insightful biography of the best women's soccer player in the world. Get an up-close look at this superstar athlete with Matt Christopher, the number one sports series for kids.

I love soccer so much. My dad is a soccer coach. I play left mid( best spot on the field). If we girls like soccer thank mia for what she did. She showed the boys that girls are so much better. (So true). We girls can beat the boys in soccer any day any time and any where! Bring it boys i am so ready to win and show you who is the boss! Go girls! Girls we can be tuff to. Dont let the boys out shine us! We have so many more moves to do. (Flick the hair and put the soccer ball underneath their feet. Trust me it does work). Pass and go and shoot another goal. But dont be to hard. We dont want the boys to look so bad!!! SOKKERGIRL13
