After breaking out as a substitute for the U.S. team at the World Cup in Germany - she became the first player with both a goal and an assists in the final, although her team would eventually fall to Japan on penalty kicks - she was fully established as a starter by the next summer when the London Olympics rolled around. Now she's a savvy veteran, handling her fame with aplomb as she prepares for her World Cup sequel. (AP Photo/Chris O'Meara, File)
