Milbrett is one of this country’s most impressive and accomplished female soccer players. The 5-foot-2 forward terrorized opposing defenses for the U.S. Women’s National Team from 1991-2005.
Milbrett scored exactly 100 goals in her U.S. WNT career, making her one of two players (with Mia Hamm being the other) to hit the century mark for college and country. Her 100 goals is tied for fifth all-time in U.S. history and her 64 career assists are fourth on the USA’s all-time list.
During her career, she was a part of some of the most important teams in U.S. Women’s Soccer history. She not only won a gold medal in 1996 in Atlanta, but also scored the game-winner in the gold medal match to beat China. She also scored in the 2000 Olympic gold medal game and was one of most dangerous scorers for the historic team that won 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Known as a ruthless attacker on the field, Milbrett was a free-thinker and a fun-loving teammate off the pitch. Brandi Chastain, Milbrett’s teammate during the 1996 and 2000 Olympics, as well as the 1999, and 2003 World Cups, had the honor of informing her all these years later that she is being inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame. It is well-deserved.
