Scotland national Claire Emslie scored Scotland’s first-ever Women’s World Cup goal Sunday. If South Florida soccer fans think the name sounds familiar, they would be right.

Emslie, who is now signed to Orlando Pride of the NWSL, played collegiate soccer at Florida Atlantic University. She racked up 29 goals and 10 assists, and earned All-Conference USA honors twice.

In the summer of 2015, as many local players do, Claire Emslie joined FC Surge. Playing as a forward, Emslie best game came against NTC Rush, where she scored a brace.
