Pia Sundhage could not have asked for a better performance from the U.S. women's national team in her farewell match.

Sundhage ended her five-year tenure as head coach of the United States by guiding her team to a 6-2 victory over Australia in front of a sold-out crowd of 18,589 fans at Dicks Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colorado on Wednesday night. Alex Morgan led the way for the U.S., scoring two goals and assisting on two others to help erase a 2-1 deficit.

Heather O'Reilly, Abby Wambach, Shannon Boxx and Sidney Leroux also found the back of the net while Hope Solo went the distance in goal.

The win saw Sundhage finish her time as U.S. coach with a 91-6-10 record that included two Olympic gold medal finishes and a runners-up medal at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup.

What do you think of the U.S women's national team's 6-2 win over Australia? How do you look back on Sundhage's time as USWNT head coach? Think it will be difficult replacing her?
