    From a story just posted on Yahoo.com News:

    "HARRISON, N.J. (AP) — Move over Mia Hamm. Abby Wambach is now the greatest goal scorer in international soccer.

    Wambach scored four times in the first half to break Hamm's record for international career goals with room to spare in a 5-0 victory over South Korea on Thursday night.

    The four goals gave the 33-year-old Wambach 160, two more than Hamm had in a storied career that ended in 2004.

    Wambach connected three times in the first 29 minutes to break Hamm's mark of 158 international goals, and she added another in injury time to give her a nice round number."

    Here's the link to the complete story:

    Congrats to Abby. It's a heck of an accomplishment considering that she still has a fair amount of soccer left in her and I would think women's soccer is more competitive than it was back in Mia's day. In any event, it's a tremendous personal accomplishment for a great Gator.

    That 3rd goal was a vintage Wambach header.
