Yael like a Girl: Female Football Stars Playlist


Ever wonder what Alex Morgan has playing on her iPod? Or what Megan Rapinoe dances to in the locker room? How about what the Swedish National Team Captain, Caroline Seger, is blasting in her headphones? Or what the five-time FIFA world player of the year, Marta, sings along to in the car on the way to practice? Now you can see who shares your taste in music and who you think should stay on the football field and away from the DJ booth.

Here’s your chance to test your knowledge of your favorite female footballers taste in music! Below is the link to a playlist. See if you can guess which song was shared with me by each of the following professional players. Then scroll down to check your answers and share your score in the comments section. (Note: there is one fewer song than there are players because two players share a favorite tune.) Good luck and enjoy jamming out like the stars!

Here’s the Playlist.

-Anita Asante: (England, Kopparbergs/Göteborg FC, Midfielder) “Neets” has gained the reputation from her teammates as being somewhat of a musical authority. Her favorite song is the debut song for the group who released it, and has charted in Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

-Verónica Boquete: (Spain, Tyresö FF, Midfielder) It shouldn’t be hard to guess from the list what song the talented Spanish playmaker, “Vero,” chose.

-Lauren Cheney: (USA, Midfielder/Forward) Cheney prefers smooth R&B.

-Ashlyn Harris: (USA, FCR 2001 Duisburg, Goalkeeper) Ashlyn’s favorite song is also the name of the album on which it was released in 1993.

-Sarah Huffman: (USA, Midfielder) “Huffy” says summer is all about country music for her.

-Meghan Klingenberg: (USA , Tyresö FF, Defender) “Kling” is another country fan.

-Karina LeBlanc: (Canada, Goalkeeper) “KK” brings a little reggae flavor to the playlist.

-Lori Lindsey: (USA, Midfielder) Lori “Lightning” Lindsey might need to wear a cowboy hat if she attends a concert by her song’s artist.

-Carli Lloyd: (USA, Midfielder) The winning goal scorer in the Olympic gold medal game likes to relax to a slower song.

-Marta: (Brazil, Tyresö FF, Forward) The Brazilian superstar shared her favorite artist, and anyone familiar with Portuguese should have no problem picking hers.

-Anja Mittag: (Germany, LDB FC Malmö, Forward) You might have heard Anja’s favorite song on the radio in the U.S. in the summer of 2002.

-Alex Morgan: (USA, Forward) “Baby Horse” has been loving an acoustic hit recently.

-Heather O’Reilly: (USA, Midfielder/Forward) HAO, pronounced “Hay-oh,” gets her nickname from her initials. She went with an all-time fave that she likes to perform for her teammates in the locker room.

-Megan Rapinoe: (USA, Midfielder) “Pinoe” shares her favorite with a USWNT teammate.

-Ali Riley: (New Zealand, LDB FC Malmö, Defender) Ali’s pick is by an artist whose most recent album is titled, “Master of My Make-Believe.”

-Caroline Seger: (Sweden, Tyresö FF, Midfielder) She played in WPS for two years and now sings along to the lyrics, “I’ll be your platinum, I’ll be your silver, I’ll be your gold.”

-Christine Sinclair: (Canada, Forward) The Canadian legend, also known as “Sinc,” chose to go a bit old school with her selection, but you can’t go wrong with this classic.

-Therese Sjögran: (Sweden, LDB FC Malmö, Midfielder) “Tee,” who played for Sky Blue FC of WPS last season, likes a song that gained its British singer acclaim in 2010.

-Abby Wambach: (USA, Forward) Abby isn’t the only soccer star who jams out to a tune that has the line, “Why don’t we break the rules already?”
