Abby Wambach

Mary Abigail "Abby" Wambach (born June 2, 1980) is an American female professional soccer player and Olympic gold medalist. A four-time winner of the U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year award, she has been a regular on the U.S. women's national team since 2003, and is the highest scorer for the U.S. national team with over 120 goals in international play.

On May 9, 2011, the U.S. roster for the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup tournament in Germany was announced, including Wambach. The 2011 Women's World Cup tournament is the third in which she has played.

In the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup Final against underdogs Japan, Wambach's trademark 'header' goal, her fourth in the tournament, in the first half of extra-time made her the American FIFA Women's World Cup all-time scoring leader with 13 goals, second to Brazil's Marta and Germany's Birgit Prinz (14 all-time goals each). Team USA was forced to a penalty shootout after a late equalizer by Japan. In the PSO, Japan won 3-1, with Wambach converting the fourth and only penalty
