WHERE ARE THEY NOW? The 1999 U.S. Women's National Team

The 1999 Women's World Cup remains one of the most seminal sporting events in American history.

The United States Women's National Team, playing on home soil, in front of a packed crowd at the Rose Bowl in California, gave women's soccer a match for the ages against China, one that went all the way to penalty kicks. U.S. goalkeeper Briana Scurry came up with a crucial save on China's third penalty kick, clearing the way for Brandi Chastain to clinch the World Cup trophy with a successful penalty kick.

The image of Chastain celebrating on the field afterward has since become one of the most iconic in women's sports. And with Tuesday being the anniversary of the U.S. victory, now is the perfect time to look back on the women who participated in that legendary match.
