O’Reilly has won the WPS with Sky Blue FC, FA Cup with Arsenal, and NWSL titles with both North Carolina Courage and FC Kansas City.
She accumulated a wild 231 caps in a decade-and-a-half with the USWNT, scoring 42 goals.
Only seven USWNT players have been capped more times than O’Reilly.
On the day before the opening of the 2019 NWSL season, I would like to share that this will be my last season as professional player! It’s been a long and beautiful ride. More goodbyes can come after the season. Until then, we have work to do! See you at the stadium! #courage pic.twitter.com/pu1Ic0yUL6— Heather O'Reilly (@HeatherOReilly) April 12, 2019
