Soccer Power Couple : Sydney Leroux and Dom Dwyer were secretly married in January

Soccer Power Couple : U.S Women’s National Team forward Sydney Leroux and Sporting Kansas City striker Dom Dwyer are married.

“What do you do when you meet someone who has seen the best of you, the worst of you and chooses both?” Leroux asked in an instagram post showing her kissing Dwyer, before answering in a subsequent entry showing the pair in “Dwyer” shirts, “You marry him.”

The pair wear the shirt numbers two (Dwyer) and 14 (Leroux) for their respective teams, and decided to use that date — Valentine’s Day — to announce their January wedding, which the couple kept a secret.

“Juggling our careers and relationship is very difficult, which is why we decided to wed privately in January,” they said in a statement published by People. “We wanted to announce our marriage at an appropriate time when we were together and at a time that suited our families.

“We also wanted to make sure that we told all of our close friends and teammates before we announced it publicly.”

Canadian-born Leroux is expected to be a key player in this summer’s World Cup, hosted in her birth country. Englishman Dwyer is preparing for the upcoming 2015 Major League Soccer season with SKC.
