Alyson Kay "Aly" Wagner (born August 10, 1980) is a retired American soccer midfielder who last played for Los Angeles Sol of Women's Professional Soccer. She was a member of the United States women's national soccer team. On January 14, 2010, Wagner announced her retirement from professional soccer.[1] Wagner is currently the Chief Operating Officer of a plant food company.

Early life[edit]

Born and raised in San Jose, California, Wagner attended Presentation High School and was a four-year varsity starter on the soccer team. She helped the Panthers win the Central Coast Championship as a sophomore and senior. She was named CCS Player of the Year as a junior and senior and was selected as League MVP during her freshman, sophomore and junior years. As a senior, she was named NSCAA All-American, Parade All-American, Parade Magazine High School Player of the Year, and the Gatorade National High School Player of the Year. She was also named as the Northern California Student-Athlete of the Year and Presentation Scholar Athlete of the Year the same year.[2]

Santa Clara University[edit]

Wagner began playing with the United States women's national soccer team in 1998, while still a freshman at Santa Clara University. She played in 23 games for the Broncos, starting 21, and scored 10 goals with 12 assists. She was named Second-Team NSCAA All-American, First-Team All-WCC and the WCC Freshman of the Year.[2]

In 2001, she led Santa Clara to the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship, scoring the only goal in Santa Clara's 1-0 victory over perennial powerhouse North Carolina.

Wagner was awarded the 2002 Hermann Trophy as the top collegiate soccer player in the country and the Today's Top VIII Award as a member of the Class of 2002.[3]

Playing career[edit]

Club[edit]

Wagner was the first player selected in the Women's United Soccer Association's 2003 draft, with the San Diego Spirit trading three players for the rights to draft her. At the conclusion of the 2003 season, she was traded to the Boston Breakers, shortly before the WUSA suspended operations. She finally got the opportunity to play for the Breakers in a June 19, 2004 exhibition match against the Washington Freedom in Blaine, Minnesota, as part of a coordinated effort to maintain public interest in the WUSA. In 2005, Wagner scored twice in three games for Olympique Lyonnais in the French First Division.[4]

In 2009, she began playing midfielder for the Los Angeles Sol of Women's Professional Soccer (WPS), successor to the failed WUSA.

International[edit]

Aly Wagner competed for the United States women's national soccer team from 1999 to 2008, in 131 international matches, scored 21 goals and made 42 assists.

In 2003, FIFA women's world cup, Wagner competed in 4 matches, 3 group-stage matches and the semi-final match.[5]

In 2004, she was selected for the United States Women's Soccer team at the Athens Olympics; she played four matches, 3 group-stage matches and the semi-final match, helping the U.S. to a gold medal.[5]

On July 30, 2006, she became the 18th United States Women's National Team player to reach the mark of 100 caps in a friendly match against Canada.

In 2007, Wagner was selected for the FIFA women's world cup; and she competed in the third-place play-off match.[5]

Despite a double hernia operation early in 2008, she was selected for the US team to play at the 2008 Summer Olympics, appearing as a substitute in a group-stage match against New Zealand.[6][5][7]
