Your New Captain: Christie Rampone
Christie Rampone was named captain of the USWNT by new coach Pia Sundhage. She is the most capped player on the squad, but I am a little surprised by this appointment. Last fall Tony DiCicco said during the World Cup that she was virtually silent during his first two years as coach. She'll lead by example, that's for sure. She was the US's best defender and arguably their best player during the 2007 World Cup.
