Christie Rampone, longtime defender for the U.S. Women’s National Team, officially said her goodbye to international soccer on a very cold Saturday, March 4, in Harrison, New Jersey. In an appropriately understated ceremony before the SheBelieves Cup match between the USWNT and England, Rampone, accompanied by her daughters, was honored for her 311 caps, two World Cup titles, and three Olympic gold medals.

England’s Ellen White scored the game-winner in the 89th minute to grab the win for the Lionesses in front of 26,500 at Red Bull Arena.

France won the tournament by defeating the USWNT, 3-0, on Tuesday, March 7.
