There really cannot be a doubt about this one.
In yet another classic involving the women's team, the Americans went 120 scoreless minutes with fellow world power China in a clash of the titans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
This was not just any game though, it was the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup final.
The long battle resulted in a penalty shootout, which went punch for punch. The only hiccup for either side, China's Liu Ying saw her shot saved by Brianna Scurry in the third round of kicks.
With the US shooting last, the score was 4-4 heading into the last shot. Brandi Chastain could end it. Otherwise, it would go to sudden death in the shootout.
Calm, cool, and collected, Chastain drove a left-footed shot past Gao Hong, giving the Americans a 5-4 and their second World Cup triumph.
Twelve years later, this shot still lives on as one of the proudest moments in American sports history and certainly the best in American soccer. It deserves to be No. 1.
