“. . . Her analysis takes the viewers inside the action for a player’s perspective.”

As her former USWNT mates enter the Women's World Cup Round of 16 this weekend, Ali Krieger tackles her new role as an ESPN soccer analyst during a visit to Bristol

Ali Krieger is one of America’s most decorated soccer players.

A professional since 2006, Krieger played 108 matches for the U.S. Women’s National Team, including in three FIFA World Cup competitions in 2011, 2015, and 2019. She won the last two.

Last month, Krieger joined ESPN as a soccer studio analyst and quickly established her profile as one of the emerging voices for women’s soccer in the U.S., analyzing her former team’s performance as they chase an unprecedented World Cup title threepeat in the land Down Under.

“Ali brings great, fresh off-the-field insight to ESPN FC’s Women’s World Cup coverage,” said ESPN FC producer Louise Moran. “To have a two-time World Cup winner in the studio who knows the U.S. Women’s National Team players so well has been invaluable to the program and our fans.

“She goes beyond the formations and tactics, and her analysis takes the viewers inside the action for a player’s perspective.”

Krieger was at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Conn., on Wednesday, where she appeared on SportsCenter, taped The ESPN Daily podcast, and joined host Sebastian Salazar on ESPN FC.
