Three of the four attackers chosen were from the American roster, with captain Lindsey Munday and record-breaking linemates Katrina Dowd and Katie Rowan joined by Canada's Dana Dobbie.

Midfielder Sarah Albrecht, defender Amber Falcone and goalkeeper Devon Wills were also named All-World, as the U.S. women had as many honorees as the rest of the tournament combined.
