Abby Wambach breaks Mia Hamm’s record
Abby Wambach made history by breaking Mia Hamm’s record for international career goals.
The 33-year-old soccer player made four goals in the first half of their game against South Korea and her international career goals totaled to 160, beating Hamm’s record of 158, according to the Associated Press.
According to Fox Sports, it was in the 29th minute of the first half when Wambach made a few goals before making her fourth goal, Alex Morgan with the assist, a minute before the game hit halftime.
“I’m just so proud of her,” Hamm told the Associated Press. “She fights for the ball, she’s courageous and she never gives up. Her strength and perseverance is what makes her so great and it’s what defenders and opposing teams fear.”
“From being her teammate early in her career, I know all she ever wanted to do was win, and so continues to do that. I’m just glad I got to share 158 with her. It was short, but it was fun.”
