The Mewis Sisters Represent The USWNT With Pride

Sam Mewis is a familiar face among the USWNT squad and has been a solid midfielder for the World Cup champions. Her sister Kristie, on the other hand, had not made an appearance for the USWNT since 2014.
However, after suffering an ACL injury and returning back to the NWSL stronger and more confident, Kristie earned herself an NWSL Challenge Cup with Houston and a roster spot on the USWNT as they faced the Netherlands. After a six-year hiatus, USWNT manager Vlatko Andonovski decided two Mewis’ were better than one. He was definitely right!
This is just a Kristie Mewis appreciation tweet.The older of the Mewis sisters last played for the national team in 2014.
6 years later, she gets cap. AND scores.

Within nine minutes of Kristie Mewis being subbed on, she netted a goal for the U.S.
The joy and excitement her teammates and sister had for her was heartwarming. Seeing a new face step up and make a difference for the USWNT is great to see. It just goes to show that some familiar faces can be substituted with new faces.
All I can say is you love to see the USWNT thriving and scoring goals.
