USWNT records — All-time scoring leaders, cap winners, coaches

The United States women's national team is in uncertain territory following its earliest World Cup exit in history, but they're pointed in the right direction following a W Gold Cup triumph and the hiring of Emma Hayes leading to the Olympics this summer.

In any event, there's no question the USWNT is the greatest program in women's football history.

Some of the greatest to ever play the game have worn the USWNT kit, as Michelle Akers, Mia Hamm, Abby Wambach, and Christie Rampone helped set the stage for Becky Sauerbrunn, Alex Morgan, and Lindsey Horan.

And while Sophia Smith hopes to join Morgan in ranking inside the top ten in program history for goals, assists, and caps, that sort of standard has eluded even some of the most celebrated names in USWNT lore.
