Soccer legend Brandi Chastain cheers on US team in Women's World Cup

Chastain played in the 1999 World Cup.

“I’m giddy, like I can hardly wait for them to run out on the field for the first time. I feel like I’m about to play with them,” she said.

Chastain also said she welcomes the spotlight on issues associated with women's soccer -- player Megan Rapinoe has spoken out about pay equity, and closing the pay gap between men and women players.
