Longtime U.S. national team goalkeeper Briana Scurry is retiring from soccer.
Scurry, a former Anoka High star, made the announcement Wednesday. She spent this season on the roster of the Washington Freedom of Women's Professional Soccer, but she played in only one game because of lingering effects from a concussion.
The 39-year-old Scurry made 173 appearances for the U.S. team. She is most remembered the final save that clinched the penalty shootout against China in the 1999 World Cup final.
Scurry also was the starting goalkeeper for the U.S. teams that won gold at the 1996 and 2004 Olympics.
