Abby Wambach gets 100th goal in U.S. win over Canada
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Abby Wambach scored her 100th international goal in the United States' 1-0 win over Canada in her hometown of Rochester.
The goal in Sunday's exhibition was a Wambach classic. Shannon Boxx picked up a loose ball in midfield from a goal kick in the 79th minute, Lauren Cheney fed a pass through the defense and Wambach slotted her shot inside the far post from nine yards.
It was Wambach's second international game since she broke her leg last July in the final pre-Olympic match.
Wambach joins eight other players, including Americans Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (129), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100), in the 100-goal club.
