Ali Krieger interview on local TV offers in-depth 20 minutes on wide range of topics
Washington, D.C. area and International soccer star Ali Krieger joined WJLA 7’s Alex Parker on Toyota SportsTalk on Tuesday to talk about the U.S. World Cup win, her amazing career, and her current team, the Washington Spirit.
The interview covers the superstar’s recent World Cup win, touring afterwards, NWSL play, her own future and that of women’s soccer (Krieger prefers “football”); and even her ESPN Body Issue photo and video shoot.
Krieger’s local NWSL team the Washington Spirit have sold out two of the last three home games since the World Cup win even before Krieger and her World Cup teammate Ashlyn Harris returned to the field after a much deserved rest. The Maryland SoccerPlex based Spirit are locked in a tight battle, currently sitting in third place, with both home field advantage and missing out completely still a possibility with five games remaining in the 2015 season.
The Spirt face Western New York Flash at home tonight, hit the road for three straight matches, then close regular season at home Saturday, September 5th against first place Seattle Reign FC. If they finish in first or second place overall in the nine-team NWSL, they will host a nationally televised semifinal playoff match on Sunday, September 13. If they finish in first and win their semifinal, they would host the final on Thursday, October 1.
