Here's where every member on the USWNT roster played college soccer

NCAA Photos dunn UNC Crystal Dunn is one of five former Tar Heels on the current USWNT roster.

The United States Women's National Team won its world-best fourth Women's World Cup, defeating the Netherlands 2-0 for the 2019 title. Former Portland Pilot Megan Rapinoe and former Wisconsin Badger Rose Lavelle scored in the final match.

This year's World Cup team was led by a squad of former college stars. Twenty-one of the 23 players on the active roster played NCAA Division I women's soccer.

Five players hail from UNC — most of any school — while three played at Virginia, making the ACC the most represented conference on the USWNT roster with eight. The Pac-12 boasts six soccer alumnae on the list, while the Big Ten, Big 12 and West Coast Conference also each have at least one representative on the national team.

This list notes the schools where each player finished her career.
