Kristine LillyFormer U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Kristine Lilly has been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame. Joining  Lilly and U.S. Men’s National Team forward Brian McBride in the Class of 2014 is former U.S. Men’s National Team and Major League Soccer head coach Bob Bradley.

Lilly, the sport’s all-time international caps leader, having played 352 games for the United States between 1987 and 2010, and McBride, who starred in three FIFA World Cups (1998, 2002 and 2006) for the U.S. MNT, are first-ballot Hall of Fame inductees. Bradley enters the Hall of Fame after 13 years of coaching soccer at the highest levels in the United States.

Lilly enters the Hall of Fame after a 24-year international career that included winning two of the five FIFA Women’s World Cups in which she played. A two-time Olympic gold medalist, Lilly played six seasons in domestic professional leagues, including five for the Boston Breakers in the Women’s United Soccer Association and Women’s Professional Soccer. Lilly continues to work in the game as Director of the Kristine Lilly Soccer Academy and an instructor for TeamFirst Soccer Academy.

“One of the most humbling parts of this is being inducted with so many of the greats that came before me,” said Lilly. “It’s always an honor to be recognized for something you’ve done, especially for something we did for so long on the U.S. team. It was amazing to wear that U.S. jersey for so long, and I’m forever grateful for the time I was able to play and really grateful for this honor.”

Complete information about the election and eligibility procedures is available online at .

The National Soccer Hall of Fame closed its Oneonta, N.Y., facility in 2010. The election process is being administered by U.S. Soccer Federation staff under election and eligibility guidelines established by the Hall of Fame Board of Directors.

Established in 1950, the National Soccer Hall of Fame is dedicated to the sport of soccer in America by celebrating its history, preserving its legacy, inspiring its youth and honoring its heroes for generations to come.
