Julie Ertz

Podcast — Welcome back, women’s soccer fans!

We’re back with another episode of The Best We Know. As always, Rachael is joined by R.J. Allen, and it’s time for the first non-FC Gold Pride player on this show! Instead, the two chat about Julie Ertz, who recently made her 100th appearance for the U.S. women’s national team.

Ertz has spent her entire career with the Chicago Red Stars in the National Women’s Soccer League. Last year, she went to her first-ever NWSL Championship match. Internationally, what else is there to say about Ertz?

She’s a two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion, featuring in different spots in each tournament she’s been part of. This year, she has a chance to aim for Olympic Gold. Meanwhile, Ertz is the captain of the Red Stars and has made over 70 regular-season appearances in the NWSL.
