(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- Abby Wambach scored her 156th career international goal as the U.S. Women’s soccer team defeated South Korea Saturday night at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, 4-1.
Kiristie Mewis put the U.S. on the board first in the third minute with her first international score. Lauren Cheney followed up in the seventh minute, sending the ball pass South Korea goalkeeper Kim Jungmi for a 2-0 lead.
Carli Llyod gave the United States a 3-1 advantage when she scored from 30 yards out in the 57th minute. Wambach increased the lead for the Stars and Stripes when she connected on penalty kick in stoppage time after Alex Morgan was fouled.
The 33-year-old Wambach is now just two goals shy of Mia Hamm’s all-time U.S. record.
