Several United States women’s soccer stars, like Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan were featured in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.
Morgan, who poured in five goals in today’s contest against Thailand, is in the prominent issue for the third time.
The issue dropped earlier this May, but Morgan and Sports Illustrated have released new photos throughout the month of May and into early June.
While Morgan and Rapinoe were the more well-known names, a defender from the U.S. women’s national team was featured in the shoot as well.
Abby Dahlkemper might not be as well known as Alex Morgan or Megan Rapinoe, but after this year’s World Cup, she might be.
To celebrate the USWNT’s game against Thailand on Tuesday, Sports Illustrated published a photo from Dahlkepmer’s shoot.

The star defender shared a few photos of her own as well.
Dahlkemper made her Sports Illustrated debut this year. Here’s what she had to say when she learned she would be featured in the issue.
“I was kind of in disbelief because Sports Illustrated is such an iconic magazine to be a part of. I was just shocked… and honored and I was really excited about the opportunity to have people get to know me off the field and not in soccer clothes.”
