RAPINOE LIVING HER DREAM AT THE TOP

THE BEST FIFA FOOTBALL AWARDS

"Tearing my ACL was an opportunity to hit reset"

Megan Rapinoe has been a household name in women’s football for a decade. At the age of 33, she was nominated for The Best FIFA Women’s Player award, the top individual award in the women's game. The most experienced player in this year’s list of candidates, the California-native is playing some of her best football yet.

Facing adversity in the shape of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear in late 2015, her third ACL injury of her career, Rapinoe has evolved as a player and shown her ability to adapt to a new style of play, a testament to her high football IQ and determination to excel.

FULL INTERVIEW

Of course the medals, wins and World Cups are incredible but I think when I look back at the things that are so meaningful forever, it will be the impact that we’ve been able to have off the field as well.
