Good news, everyone!
Really. The United States Womens National Team topped Mexico 3-0 Friday night at PPL Park.
The 8,773 people who showed up saw a CONCACAF semifinal game folded in there, as well. The final is today: U.S. vs. Costa Rica.
Congratulations are definitely in order. That much is obvious.
Oh, and by the way, this is also happening:
Abby Wambach continues to add to her world goal scoring record after tallying career goals No. 172 and 173 against Haiti on Oct. 20 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. On June 20, 2013, Wambach passed the legendary Mia Hamm to become the world’s all-time leading scorer when she pounded in four goals against South Korea at Red Bull Arena. Hamm had 158 international goals from 1987-2004. The match against Haiti marked the 111th win for the USA in a game in which Wambach has scored at least one goal (111-2-8). Wambach has scored 48 goals in her past 59 games over 2012, 2013 and 2014. She is also third all-time in assists with 65, behind only Kristine Lilly (105) and Hamm (144).
Oh, yes. Congratulations. Y’think?
Kickoff is 6 pm Eastern; game is broadcast on FOX Sports 1.
