The honeymoon over for Abby Wambach and her US National Soccer teammates. It was a friendly game against Australia in San Antonio Sunday.
Just the sixth minute, the Aussies clear a free kick, Lauren Holiday cracked the volley off a defender and in.
Eight minutes later, the Western New York Flash is heard from. Carli Lloyd with the left-footer from the top of the box. 2-0 USA at the half.
To the second half and Lloyd sends a ball in for Wambach, who touches it inside the post.
To stoppage time and Heather O'Reilly on the cross. Great dummy by Alex Morgan and Christen Press one-timed the ball home.
The US hosts New Zealand next Sunday in San Francisco.
