Emily Sonnett on Soccer Defending

[Intro Music]>>EMILY: I’m Emily Sonnett and I’m a
defender for the U.S. Women’s National Team and the Portland Thorns. [Music]>>EMILY: I think my main job as a defender
is first to defend, but then how can I put my teammates in better positions to score. I’m trying to constantly break lines and
find the furthest ball. Balancing as a defender, when to go forward
or when to stay, what best fits the game at the appropriate time. [Outro Music]
