Free Kicks is a series of interviews with members of the Virginia women’s soccer team. In this installment, senior goalkeeper Christina de Vries sat down to answer a few questions about herself.

My earliest sports memory is… Playing for my AYSO team, the Tweedie Birds, and they put me in goal and I saved a ball with my head

Other than soccer, my favorite sport to play is… tennis

When I have an hour of free time, I usually… take a nap

If I won the lottery, I would… give it to my parents

Other than the United States, the team I was rooting for at the World Cup was … Germany

If I could make one change to the soccer rule book, it would be…make the goal smaller

The most embarrassing song on my IPod is… ‘What Is Love’ by Haddaway, from ‘Night at the Roxbury’

I know its not good for you, but I still eat… fun dip

If I could be anywhere in the world right now, I would be… in Tahiti

Most scared I have ever been… when my best friend put on the ‘Scream’ mask

My weirdest dream was… during my freshman year when I had a dream that Bill, our trainer, was killing people by wacking them in the head with Gatorade coolers

When I was growing up, I collected… pogs and legos
