Akers was the architect of the USWNT’s run to the finals, scoring eight goals in the run-up to the championship against Norway. In the finals, Akers scored both of the USA goals to drive the Stars and Stripes to an iconic 2-1 win over Norway. With 10 goals, Akers finished as the tournament Golden Boot winner, and was named the Silver Ball winnner as the second-best player of the tournament, behind her teammate Carin Jennings.
