Soccer star Christen Press and Araksya go waaay back

- Soccer forward Christen Press, who's originally from Southern California, returned to Good Day LA on Friday.

The World Cup champ talked about fellow athlete Abby Wambach's retirement -- and life since America's big win this summer.

“It has been so much madness since the World Cup," said Press. "We have been all over the country doing a lot of media, playing games, juggling playing with our club teams and playing with the National team. …We’ve just been all over the place."

Press said she also loves returning to her hometown of Rancho Palos Verdes.

As it turns out, she and Araksya (who's also from PV) go way back: she attended a birthday party for Araksya's sister back in the day!
