Abby Wambach scored four goals and the World Cup-bound United States defeated Costa Rica 6-0 Sunday night for the team’s fifth CONCACAF Women’s Championship title.
The United States is in the World Cup final for the first time since it last won the title in 1999, and once again Abby Wambach came up big for these Americans, scoring in a 3-1 victory over France on Wednesday.
The Americans are moving on to the semifinals after one of the most exciting games ever at the Women’s World Cup — winning 5-3 on penalty kicks after a 2-2 tie.
Abby Wambach scored and assisted on Amy Rodriguez’s goal in the first half to lead the United States to a 2-0 win against No. 4 Japan in an exhibition Saturday.
