U.S. Women's National Soccer TeamThe U.S. Women's National Soccer Team was founded in 1985, the first ever women's soccer team made up of professional, full-time athletes. The team has won two Women's World Cups (1991 and 1999), two Olympic women's tournaments (1996 and 2004), and four Algarve Cups (2000, 2003, 2004, 2005). It is considered one of the most sucessful women's or men's national soccer teams in history.

In 2004, two retired Women's National team players, Mia Hamm and Michelle Akers, were the only two women included in the FIFA 100, a list compiled by soccer legend Pelé of the greatest living footballers.
