Wedding to follow World Cup for US teammates Krieger, Harris
PARIS (AP) ‐ Many World Cup teammates have special bonds. The tie that binds U.S. defender Ali Krieger and American goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris is among the strongest at the tournament.
They got engaged last year and are planning a December wedding.
"A lot of our teammates with their partners and spouses, they don’t get to be here day in and day out," Krieger said. "It’s really nice to be able to share this moment with her and to make these memories with her."
They announced their engagement in People magazine in March, revealing Harris proposed on the beach in Clearwater, Florida, during a picnic last Sept. 15 and surprised Krieger with a ring.
"She is what makes me. She is my life. She is the person I am spending the rest of my life with," Harris said.
"Or at least a couple years, ya know"
They first met in 2010, a time both were training with the national team. They were teammates with the Washington Spirit of the National Women’s Soccer League for much of 2013-15. Harris was left unprotected in an expansion draft and was taken by the Orlando Pride, and Krieger joined her when she was traded to the Pride after the 2016 season.
