Former Penn State Standout Ali Krieger Named to CONCACAF Roster

Former Penn State standout and current member of the United States Women’s National Soccer team Ali Krieger has been named to the United States CONCACAF championship roster, a qualifier for next year’s World Cup.

At Penn State, Krieger was a two time All-American, and helped lead the Nittany Lions to four consecutive Big Ten championships. The midfielder was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, and a semifinalist for the Hermann Trophy, college soccer’s version of the Heisman.

Krieger broke her leg junior year, and soon after suffered blood clots which made it difficult to breathe. She became a defender, and promptly won the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year honor as a senior.

Krieger’s international experience has been marred by injuries. She scored the game-winning penalty kick in 2011’s quarterfinal in Brazil. A year later, however, she tore both her MCL and ACL, and missed the 2012 London Summer Olympics.

The CONCACAF championship pits eight teams from North and Central America, as well as the Caribbean. The championship match will be played in Chester, Pa. The top three teams qualify for the Women’s World Cup.
