For adults, Mia Hamm and Brandy Chastain are Team U.S.A. Women's soccer heroes. But for the younger generation, it's all about the current Team U.S.A.

"Megan Rapinoe is probably one of my favorites," said soccer player Riley Probel.

"Megan Rapinoe because she's determined," said Nicole Powell, who plays soccer with Riley.

"My favorite is Carli Lloyd because she's very determined and she's very hardworking and she never stops," said Sophia Davenport, another team member.

These girls are avid Team U.S.A. fans. Probably because they play soccer together.

"It's just a really fun and interactive sport," said Davenport.

"I like watching my team score and then them all coming together to celebrate," said Probel.

They love following the women's world cup.

"Most of the games have been pretty crazy," said Probel.

"It's really suspenseful," said Davenport.

And learning from their heroes.

"My favorite part is watching them control the ball or move the ball," said Davenport.

And maybe becoming another Team USA name to remember.

"I wanna go as far as I can," said Davenport.
