A Brazilian international who is quick, agile and eye candy. The 26 year old defender is renowned for her part in a controversial act in 2011. She dropped to the ground in suspected agony from a back spasm. After being stretchered off she jumped back up and ran onto the field. The time delaying tactic failed as US scored in added time and went on to win on penalties.
