Correction: The article originally mentioned Team USA’s Ali Krieger as a goalkeeper. She is a defender. Team USA’s starting goalkeeper was fellow Penn State alumna Alyssa Naeher.


With a World Cup champion in the house, Penn State women’s soccer scored two goals in the second half to edge Illinois 2-1 Thursday.

The team welcomed back former player Ali Krieger to Jeffrey Field.

Krieger won a World Cup championship with Team USA. She watched her college team pull off a come-from-behind win Tuesday.

Sam Coffey scored the game-tying goal in the 49th minute. Kerry Abello would score the game-winning goal for Penn State.
