MIAMI, Florida For Alyssa Naeher, 2018 will be a year she won’t soon forget.

For the first time the 30-year-old has won the Concacaf Female Goalkeeper of the Year Award for her top performances during the calendar year.

Of note was Naeher’s display with the United States Women’s National Team at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship.

Naeher started four of the U.S.’s five matches and registered a clean sheet in all four, including the 6-0 victory over Jamaica in the Semifinal which earned the U.S. a berth in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

Naeher then backed that up with another superb performance in the Final, a 2-0 win against Canada, giving the U.S. its eighth Concacaf Women’s Championship title.

At the club level Naeher was just as good, starting 23 matches for the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL and recording seven clean sheets in helping Chicago to a fourth-place regular season finish and a berth in the NWSL playoffs.

With the U.S. looking to win a second straight FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France, Naeher will have ample opportunity to again try to stake her claim as Concacaf’s top female goalkeeper.
