Sometimes an overlooked player on that 1999 women's team, Joy Fawcett's 239 appearances makes her the 5th most capped players in the team's history. Her contributions in the heart of the USWNT's defense literally made her an indispensable part—she was the only women's national team member to play every single minute of the 1995, 1999, and 2003 World Cup, as well as the 1996 and 2000 Olympic teams. That's greatness.
