This is a very cool video from U.S. Soccer of USWNT captain Christie Rampone speaking with U.S. U-20 captain Julie Johnston. The two U.S. women’s team’s captains had the chance to talk while the full national team was preparing for its Saturday night game against the Republic of Ireland in Phoenix.
Julie Johnston was huge for the U-20’s as they won the U-20 World Cup this summer and many are predicting she will be getting her first-team call-up very soon.
Also, in case you missed it, I had a chance to speak about Johnston with one of her college coaches, former USWNT legend Brandi Chastain, this weekend.
Chastain talked specifically about Johnston’s prospects for the future with the USWNT. Check that interview out here.
The video is below. Enjoy.
