CHESTER, Pennsylvania – Minutes prior to taking the field Friday for a 2014 CONCACAF Women's Championship semifinal against Mexico, United States captain Christie Rampone was honored for making her 300th international appearance.
CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb and U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati presented Rampone with commemorative gifts in recognition of the achievement.
Rampone, 39, becomes the second U.S. player to reach the mark, joining Kristine Lilly (352 games, 1987-2010). The 16-year veteran earned her first cap against Australia on February 28, 1997.
