The U.S. Women’s National Team has struggled to generate goals at this World Cup, but when a goal was needed to secure first place in the Group of Death, the Americans were able to count on a familiar face to deliver.
Abby Wambach volleyed home a Megan Rapinoe corner kick just before halftime to deliver the eventual winning goal in a 1-0 U.S. victory. Her timely finish helped Wambach earn SBI USWNT Woman of the Match honors.
Wambach edged out Rapinoe and standout central defenders Julie Johnston and Becky Sauerbrunn for WOTM honors.
What did you think of Wambach’s performance? Which U.S. player impressed you the most against Nigeria? See the Americans winning the World Cup?
