List of the best female soccer players of all time. The greatest female athletes in the world of soccer are ranked here in order of greatness. What is so promising about the future of soccer is that many of these women's soccer stars are new or current players. Still, many of these soccer players are women who made history and were vital to the progression of women in this sport. American football is what it is because of female athletes like these. 
It is also interesting to see what former female soccer players used to do. For instance, Tisha Venturini-Hoch is now the National Spokesperson for Produce for Better Health. And after Aly Wagner retired from the Los Angeles sol of Women's Professional Soccer, she became the Chief Operating Officer of Eleanor's VF-11, a plant food company. Carla Werden Overbeck, former member and captain of the U.S. women's national soccer team, went on to become Duke University's assistant coach. She, like many others on this list, has since earned her spot in the National Soccer Hall of Fame.
