VANCOUVER, British Columbia. (AP) — With the title match looming, Pittsford's Abby Wambach isn't mincing words.
"All I care about is winning this World Cup," she said.
The star U.S. forward is playing in her fourth Women's World Cup, and she says it will be her last. A victory Sunday in the final against Japan would be the perfect ending to her World Cup career.
It would also solidify a legacy. Wambach, who has been on the national team for 15 years, has scored 183 goals, more than any other player, male or female, in the world. Of those, 77 have come on headers.
