Meghan Klingenberg is an American women's football forward and international soccer referee. She is also a former member of the US women's national team and is now playing for the Portland Thorns in the National Women's Soccer League. Klingberg was born in Southern California and was a very good soccer player as a child growing up in Encinitas, California. This is where she met her first coach when she was just a young girl, which was Kevin Steinberg.
After playing for the boys' teams her attention then turned to soccer and playing both on and off the field for both the girls and the boys. She attended the California State University of Polytechnic and in her free time became a volleyball player. Later on in her college career she was an all-star volleyball player for Oral Roberts University.
At 21 she married Jules, who was a player for the Atlanta Falcons. They have two children, Renesmee and Michael. They have also been through a lot of ups and downs as a family unit and it has taken its toll on them. During the 2021 MLS seasonghan and Jules decided it was time for their family to move, and they chose to go to Spain, which is where their youngest son was born.
When they arrived in Spain, she started training with FC Barcelona. During this time she managed to gain some valuable experience by playing for the U-23 team. After that she went to Vitoria Guinstea in the region of Cadiz. During the second half of the year she managed to get some time on the field with Real Madrid but after being overlooked for the final 23-man squad she was relieved of her duties and sent back to the USA.
After a short time with the MLS outfit she managed to get back into the public eye when she was selected to play for the U.S National Team. Playing in the camp she impressed the coaches with her work ethic and showed great mental strength. Now she is hoping to win the USW Soccer Player of the Year. This award is quite prestigious for an attacking player and given how she has helped the Americans to become world champions it is something that will certainly be welcomed by the star.
There is no doubt thatghan has the potential to become a great international player. Her performances for the Under-20s and for the team at the Olympics have shown what she is capable of. She is fast, powerful and knows how to play in the attacking position. The fact that she hasn't represented the senior team yet doesn't worry me. With the way she has developed over the past few years, I am confident that she will get many more years of top-level football.
You cannot predict the future, even in one second.

Therefore, enjoy the life you have, be grateful and be happy with everything you have will bring you to the true essence of life.
