USWNT stars Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger have confirmed they are engaged.

Speaking to People magazine, the duo who play for Orlando Pride in the NWSL said they got engaged at Clearwater Beach in Florida back in September

Harris proposed to Krieger, and the defender said yes, as they began their romantic relationship almost a decade ago after meeting on USWNT duty.

“Finally, after all these years, I just feel like I don’t have to hide anything or feel like I’m not living up to the community I’m in,” Harris said.

Fans of the duo, who both won the 2015 Women’s World Cup for the U.S. national team, have dubbed their relationship “Krashlyn” in true Hollywood style.

On and off the field, this duo have a wonderful relationship and this is incredible to see.

Meet the US Women’s World Cup team: Goalkeepers

Leave a comment

There are three goalkeepers on the United States’ 23-player Women’s World Cup roster: Hope Solo, Ashlyn Harris and Alyssa Naeher.

[ NEWS: Latest on Women’s World Cup

Here’s a look at who Jill Ellis has to call on.

Hope Solo

Hope Solo is the USA’s No. 1 and has been for the better part of a decade. She dealt with a tumultuous year, first being put through a highly publicized trial for alleged domestic violence and then being suspended from the team for the entire month of February after her husband, Jerramy Stevens, was arrested for drunk driving during training camp in a U.S. Soccer team vehicle with Solo in the passenger’s seat. Solo has moved on, however, stating that she is in a better place mentally than ever before after seeing a therapist. She is still arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and she will once again be called upon to be exactly that if the United States is to win this World Cup.

Ashlyn Harris

Ashlyln Harris emerged as the United States’ No. 2 over the past year, a lengthy process of perseverance for the goalkeeper. Harris starred for the U.S. at the youth level, helping the Americans win the U-19 World Championship (now the U-20 World Cup) in the inaugural 2002 edition. But injuries and depth charts kept her from making her senior team debut until age 27. She looked plenty capable of stepping in if need be in recent starts against England and France, during Solo’s suspension.

Alyssa Naeher

Alyssa Naeher is one of the seemingly rare league success stories on a team whose core has largely remained in tact. Naeher won 2014 National Women’s Soccer League Goalkeeper of the Year honors, giving up a slew of goals behind a bad Boston Breakers defense but still making spectacular saves in performing damage control. Like Harris, she is a champion on the youth level, winning the 2008 U-20 World Cup. She earned her only cap in December 2014.

France 2-0 USWNT: French flop leaves U.S. women with one win in last 5

Leave a comment

The United States women’s national team now has just one win in its last five matches after falling to France on Sunday.

The No. 3 ranked French side got a 51st minute goal from Eugenie Le Sommer (right) and another moments later from Jessica Houara (below, center) to down the No. 2 ranked States.

How long those numbers remain is uncertain. The USWNT has a chance to right the ship on Friday in Milton Keynes against No. 6 England.

The French could’ve broken through earlier if not for U.S. keeper Ashlyn Harris, who made some splendid first-half saves.

Abby Wambach subbed on late, and won a penalty only to see it saved by French keeper Sarah Bouhaddi.

Germany overtook the States in the FIFA rankings this December, knocking the U.S. out of the top spot for the first time since 2008.

Sunday’s result will set off some — or further —  trepidation amongst U.S. supporters. The USWNT is in a tricky World Cup Group D with Australia, Sweden and Nigeria.

Here’s how they started:
