Before Julie Ertz bids farewell to the US Women’s National Team, she’ll take the field one last time for a final friendly match against South Africa. The beloved midfielder announced her retirement last month in an emotional post on social media, but the open letter to her fans turned out not to be her final farewell.

“I expected to just walk away after retirement, but to have the opportunity to say goodbye to my teammates and the fans one last time is something special that many players dream of,” Ertz said in a statement via U.S. Soccer. “I wasn’t expecting this honor so I’m very thankful to (interim head coach) Twila (Kilgore) and to U.S. Soccer for giving me the chance to close this chapter of my life with those who have made this journey so memorable.”

Ertz and the USWNT play their final match together on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. ET, just a few days before Ertz’s fellow USWNT veteran, Megan Rapinoe, also says goodbye to the team. Ready to watch what will no doubt be an exciting match? Here’s what you need to know about how to watch Julie Ertz’s last soccer game.
