We were really just bailing water for the last 10 to 15 minutes…After they scored that goal, I was like, ‘No, this is not happening anymore. This is too big of a game. We are going to keep this lead.’

uswnt goalkeepers - mia hamm

On June 8 however, her versatility was put to the test during the USA’s first round 2-0 victory over Denmark. Goalkeeper Briana Scurry was ejected in the 84th minute for a highly-contested hand-ball infraction outside the US goal box. Since there were no other allowable substitutions to be made (the US had previously used their allotment of three) Mia Hamm was chosen to step into goal.

"I was scared to death," she said as her eyes widened. “I felt like ‘Mia Campos.’ But it’s really a once-in-a-lifetime thing. I hope I don’t have to do it again." Despite her misgivings, Hamm performed admirably, posting a save in the last minute of the match. She was determined not to let anything get by her.

There was also a free-kick that tried her nerves late in the match. “I was so out of position,” she said rolling her eyes, “I was hiding behind the wall. I didn’t know what I was doing. I’m just glad the girl missed the goal!” She now knows how the other half lives.

The experience has given Hamm more respect for goalkeepers. “The goal is so much bigger when you’re inside it than when you’re shooting at it,” Hamm said prophetically. “You’ve got to get inside it to see what it’s like.”

We don’t just play because we want to play football and be successful, but I think you will find we will come back and win points from behind because we want to win for Laura. We want to do well for Laura. We’ve gotten points this season purely because every single one of us will work as hard as we can to make sure Laura is successful. When you have a coach that has that effect, not just individually, but as a group then you know that person is special.
