Chastain talks to Shape Magazine about winning the Women’s World Cup for the U.S.
For all of us who were involved with the national team in the ’99 World Cup Game, it was a lifelong commitment to being the best that we could be and to ultimately bring all of that into play during the entire tournament. When Briana Scurry (U.S. goalkeeper) made the block on China’s third kicker, I knew right away that we would win the game. We had already made three kicks ourselves and that was such a huge turning point. It just solidified the confidence I had, and I knew we would win.
