She had a ridiculous year

Soccer: 2018 CONCACAF Women’s Championship-Canada at USA Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Tobin Heath had a 2018 that included some time off due to injury. However, when she appeared on the field, she displayed some of the wizardry and creativity that the United States Women’s National Team needed to get past some tough opponents and maintain an undefeated record on the year.

In 10 appearances for the USWNT, Tobin Heath scored 7 goals and 6 assists. That added to the 8 goals and 7 assists she had for the Portland Thorns in NWSL play. However, it wasn’t just the goals she scored or the ones she set up. It was her control with the ball at her feet. It was her creativity and ability to just shake a defender all the way off the field that saw her importance rise even more for the defending world champions.

A wizard on the field, Heath had some moves that would leave anyone shaking their head in disbelief. As we approach the 2019 Women’s World Cup, a healthy Tobin Heath at the top of her game is an X-factor that no other team possesses. Take a look at some of her best moments from last year and see the wizard at work.
