Crystal Dunn Will Attack From Everywhere

June 12, 2019
The New York Times /

Crystal Dunn is technically a defender — except she’s hardly ever on defense.

She is a left back on the United States women’s national team, but she’s also a huge attacking threat.

She makes runs up the sideline, beating opposing defenders to deliver dangerous crossing passes or to create her own shots.

“When you talk about left backs, you don’t think, ‘Wow an exciting player,’ but she’s an exciting player,” said Paul Riley, the head coach of the Carolina Courage, Dunn’s club team.
