USWNT star and ex-Man City midfielder Mewis retires due to knee injury


USA midfielder Sam Mewis has retired at the age of 31 due to a knee injury.

Mewis won the Women's World Cup in 2019, three National Women's Soccer League titles - one with the Western New York Flash and two with the North Carolina Courage - and the FA Cup in 2020 with Manchester City.

"Unfortunately, my knee can no longer tolerate the impact that elite soccer requires," Mewis said in a statement.

"Though this isn't what I wanted, this is the only path forward for me.

"I want to thank everyone who has been on my team throughout this journey. Soccer has put so many wonderful things in my life, but the most wonderful thing has been the people.

"To all my family, friends, teammates, and fans, I truly feel that we did this together and I'm extremely grateful."
