Abby Wambach: Greatest goal scorer in int'l soccer history

Postby WhoGator » Fri Jun 21, 2013 1:42 am

Knowing how the world follows soccer, she is probably known by more people worldwide than Tebow or Emmitt... Lochte would probably be up there as well.

She needed two to tie Mia Hamm and scored four in the first half in a 5-0 win over South Korea. She now has 160.

I never realized the men's all-time leader in international goals was at only 109.

Abby is the best soccer player in the world in every category. I am not a big soccer nut, but I enjoy watching the ability and competitiveness of our country's Women Team. Abby is incredible on both offense and defense.
If anyone has not seen her play to date, I highly recoomend it. She is amazing.

Abby makes the Gator Nation proud.

In soccer lingo, and to boot she's constantly condensed-on and
fouled by the defense.

So is she the most worldly recognized Gator ever? How's Tebow's fame overseas? Gators have never had a president or big general, etc. Tom Petty is a Gainesvillian, not a Gator.

How about

Great Job Abby! I remember when I first came to UF back in 1998 and you helped guide the Gators to a National Championship. What an outstanding person, player, and unbelievable champion. Go Gators and thanks Abby!!
