It was a pretty AWESOME weekend for the United States! A women’s World Cup VICTORY on 4th of July weekend?! Does it get much better than that?
Didn’t think so!
And of course there were LOTS of amazing moments during yesterday’s 5-2 victory over Japan. But one of the BEST moments happened right after the whistle blew and the USA has officially sealed the win, when Abby Wambach immediately sprinted over to her proud wife in the stands to give her a kiss!
Little background: Despite the fact that Abby Wambach leads both men and women as the top international scorer, the Rochester, New York native had NEVER won a World Cup. Until yesterday.
What an amazing moment! <3
And to make it even sweeter, Wambach and her wife (who is a former professional soccer player) work with other players like Team USA’s Megan Rapinoe for the organization Athlete Ally, which advocates for an end to homophobia and transphobia in women’s sports.
