*She’s been voted the NWSL player of the month for both May and June, only the second time a player has done so in consecutive months.

KERR PAYS TRIBUTE TO TEAMMATES
“It takes more than one player to win a game, and we had many other people who played well this weekend,” Kerr told Sky Blue FC’s website.
“To come back from being down two-nil in the 78th minute really shows our team character. Everyone on our team played their part, including the subs as well as beyond the subs.
“Overall, it was a massive team effort. It is nice to feel the love from everyone, but the team deserves this more than me.”
