Former Tar Heels Help Bring Home a World Cup Title

By Kevin Fitzpatrick - Last updated: Monday, July 6, 2015

The USWNT captured the World Cup on Sunday evening, defeating Japan by a score of 5-2 to give the United States their third Women’s World Cup title – the first country to ever accomplish that feat.

Six of the players on the team – Lori Chalupny, Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Harris, Meghan Klingenberg, Tobin Heath and Heather O’Reilly – are former University of North Carolina stars that played under decorated head coach Anson Dorrance. Dorrance has led his teams to 22 National Collegiate Championships, 20 ACC Tournament Championships and the most wins in college soccer history. Along the way, Dorrance has been named National Soccer Coach of the Year seven times.

Former Tar Heel Tobin Heath’s goal that sealed the deal for the USWNT in the World Cup final (go to 1:14):

Dorrance’s players were not only members of the USWNT in the World Cup, they also played for Canada (Robin Gayle), New Zealand (Katie Bowen) and England (Lucy Bronze).
