No one, man or woman, has scored more international goals than Abby Wambach. She’s a legend by any measure. Wambach’s goal record is easily quantified. She scored 142 in high school. 96 (a program-best) in college. 114 with her four clubs. 184 for her country.

The trophies and medals speak for themselves. The list of achievements is luridly long. She’s a six-time winner of U.S. Soccer’s Female Athlete of the Year (the most of any player), a World Cup winner and Olympic champion.
