Sydney Leroux - Playing Career - International


By virtue of her parents' mixed nationalities, Leroux was eligible to represent either Canada or the United States. She participated in the youth international teams of both countries, but by appearing in a competitive FIFA-sanctioned senior event at the 2012 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Tournament, she is now permanently tied to the U.S. team. She is the USA’s all-time leading scorer in U-20 Women’s World Cup play with 10 goals. She is among the most capped U-20 WNT players ever with 36 games and is the all-time leading scorer for the U.S. at that level with 30 goals. In 2011, she was named the 2011 U.S. Soccer Young Female Athlete of the Year, playing for the U.S. WNT and U-23 WNT.

In just her second cap for the senior side, Leroux scored five goals in a 2012 CONCACAF Olympic qualifying match between the U.S. and Guatemala; the final score of the match was 13–0. Leroux's performance tied a record for goals scored in a single match by one player in CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying and tied the single-game record for the US national team, tying teammate Amy Rodriguez, who had equaled and set the records (respectively) just two days prior in a 14–0 victory over the Dominican Republic. She scored the second goal in the quarter final game of the 2012 London Olympics against New Zealand. The game ended 2–0.

In 2012, she was the youngest player on the U.S. Women's National Team. and was a goal-scoring member of the 2012 Olympic Team in London. Leroux set an U.S. WNT record of 14 goals scored off the bench in a year by breaking the previous bench scoring record of nine goals set by Debbie Keller in 1998.
