United States women finish 2013 with a 4-1 win over Brazil

Nov 10, 2013, 9:45 PM EST

Non-Olympic, non-World Cup years come and go without the pop and pomp of the higher-profile women’s national team seasons. Still, it’s nice to finish any year without a loss, right?

The United States completed its 2013 schedule with a 4-1 win Sunday over Brazil.

Thus, the win before a crowd of 20,274 at the Florida Citrus Bowl completed the USWNT year with a 13-0-3 record. The program last went a full year without a loss in 2006 (18-0-4).

Sydney Leroux scored twice against the world’s fourth-ranked women’s team, and Abby Wambach continued to build her statistical legacy with a first-half penalty kick, goal No. 163 of her fabulous career.

Here are the NBC highlights from Sunday:

    It’s crazy how they beat Brazil, but tie with New Zealand. Just shows that anything can happen in the sport of soccer.

    Anything can happen in any sport. Nice crowd of 20,000 plus at the citrus bowl.
