Considered one of the greatest American female soccer players ever, Michelle Akers was a key member of the U.S. Women’s National Team from 1985-2000, playing in a total of 153 games for her home country. In the inaugural 1991 Women’s FIFA World Cup, Akers was the international top goal scorer (10), winning the Golden Shoe for her efforts while helping propel the United States to a championship. Similarly, Akers helped lead the United States women to a gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, scoring seven goals with three assists. The USWNT won another FIFA Women’s World Cup in 1999 with Akers contributing six goals.

Akers is a 2004 inductee into the National Soccer Hall of Fame and, in 2002, was named FIFA Women’s Player of the Century, an honor she shared with Sun Wen of China. Additionally in 2004, when FIFA came out with the 125 greatest living soccer players, Akers was just one of two women (the other being Mia Hamm, also of the United States) selected to the prestigious list. Collegiately, Akers played soccer at Central Florida from 1985-1988 and finished her career as the leading scorer in school history. In 1988, she was named the nation’s top collegiate soccer player and was awarded the Hermann Trophy.
