Who on the USA enhanced her reputation in WWC '03? Who tarnished hers? Who stays? Who goes? Opinions can change after the Canada game, but that game should not count for that much in overall evaluations. Enhanced: Wambach (potential to be the best player in the world, showed it often during the Cup, most exciting player on the team, engaging personality, the total package); Reddick (solid defense, offensive contributions, only 21, calm, a linchpin of the future); Boxx (can she play straight defense? That might make her even more valuable); Parlow (played much better than her detractors, yours truly included, expected her to play; expanded range of game); Bivens (played well when many thought at the start of the Cup she'd lead the team in fewest minutes played); Scurry (redemption is sweet!); Akers (I know she's retired, but it remains true that the USA has never won a major tournament without Michelle Akers). Tarnished: Foudy (not a presence, other than a 15-minute stretch in the second half v. Norway); Wagner (played like a deer caught in the headlights); Milbrett (see Wagner); team's medical staff and evaluators (can you say Slaton, MacMillan, Hucles, Mullinix?). Stays: Fawcett (as long as she wants; truly the unsung hero of this team for a dozen years); Hamm (still world-class); Lilly (still world-class, can teach younger players); Sobrero (returned to near-99 form); MacMillan (depending on health recovery); Wagner (she's got too much talent to nuke after one awful Cup, but let's get Wambach featured in the ads as the face of the team); Heinrichs (you try coaching a team to a repeat title that became champion by only the slimmest of margins but everyone warpedly thinks is dominant, that experiences the retirement of the greatest player ever, and its captain, for a federation that gives you cr*p warm-up matches, while your country's league keeps you from conducting a full-length camp, and your federation sends you all around the country to promote the game during the tournament). Goes: Foudy (we need midfield help and the Olympics roster is not large enough to give her a spot); Milbrett (because when O'Reilly returns Milbrett is superfluous); Roberts (see Foudy). Ready, fire, aim!!
