I don’t know if anyone else remembers this, but Barnie got her first cap for the USWNT coming on as a sub field player. After switching jerseys with Joy Fawcett, no less.
ETA: It was the 2004 post-Olympic victory tour. At one game there were too many injuries/unavailable players to have enough subs, so when Hucles rolled her ankle it was Barnie to the rescue! And they did try so hard to get her a goal, unfortunately to no avail. IIRC, Barnie got to keep the jersey.
