FC Kansas City’s Amy LePeilbet has unique perspective on U.S. Women’s World Cup final matchup

Amy LePeilbet won’t be suiting up for the United States national team vs. Japan in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final, but she’s a FC Kansas City teammate of U.S. defender Becky Sauerbrunn and was on the field the last time the Americans were in the final, in 2011, when Japan won on penalty kicks.

FC Kansas City’s Becky Sauerbrunn a big part of U.S. women’s shutout streak in World Cup

Much of the glory went to U.S. goal scorers Carli Lloyd and Kelley O’Hara for the team’s thrilling 2-0 victory over Germany on Tuesday night in the Women’s World Cup semifinals. But equally heroic in Montreal — and throughout the tournament — has been the U.S. back line, a quartet of tenacious, smart defenders on a 513-minute shutout streak that includes Becky Sauerbrunn of FC Kansas City.
