Alex Morgan will miss Sunday’s United States women’s national team game against New Zealand with a left ankle injury. U.S. Soccer says that Morgan picked up the injury during training in San Antonio this past week and that she’s being held from the game as a precaution.

Abby Wambach, Alex Morgan, Sydney Leroux and Christen Press have combined to score 30 of the United States women’s national team’s 47 goals this year. All four are world-class forwards, but for the most part only two of the players are on the field at the same time. Sunday’s 4-0 win over Australia, in fact,…

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Tobin Heath didn’t train all week after having her right foot stomped on in last week’s semifinal. Still, she insisted she’d be ready to play in Saturday’s National Women’s Soccer League Championship game. And when game time came at Sahlen’s Stadium, she stepped right into the starting lineup for the Thorns. Forty…

Western New York Flash and Portland Thorns face off in the NWSL Championship, and the league got its star power matchup in its inaugural season.
Jul 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EST
Seattle Reign FC began the inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season a whopping 0-9-2, but a 5-1-1 record since that first victory in Boston on June 26 gives Seattle hope for the future. Reign FC aren’t mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but it would take a small miracle for them to sneak into the postseason.…

HARRISON, N.J. — The mark of many great goal scorers is the ability to be selfish in front of net. Three of the best United States forwards ever must have missed that memo. On Thursday at Red Bull Arena, Abby Wambach smashed Mia Hamm’s international goal scoring record. Wambach entered the game needing two goals…

She credited her teammates over and over again, but in the end, it was always about Wambach, even if she doesn’t want to acknowledge it.

Wambach used a 4-goal outburst against Korea Republic to surge into the all-time lead.
Jun 20, 2013, 1:40 PM EST
All the talk heading into Thursday’s United States women’s national team’s game vs. South Korea is about Abby Wambach, and that’s exactly what she doesn’t want. Wambach’s chase for the international goal scoring record is well-documented. Her 156 goals for the United States are two short of the mark held by Mia Hamm, arguably the…

MONTCLAIR, N.J. – Thursday’s United States women’s national team match falls smack in the middle of the inaugural National Women’s Soccer League season. It’s a friendly. It’s against the same team, Korea Republic, that the United States just handily defeated 4-1 on Saturday. But its relevance is critical, particularly to Abby Wambach – and for…
Jun 16, 2013, 2:02 AM EST
Abby Wambach wants to hurry up and break Mia Hamm’s all-time scoring record so that everyone will stop talking about the chase. In the waning moments of the United States women’s national team’s 4-1 win over Korea Republic on Saturday, Wambach capped off the scoring by finishing a penalty kick drawn by Alex Morgan. That…
Jun 15, 2013, 7:00 AM EST
There aren’t many firsts anymore for Abby Wambach. She’s the second all-time leading international goal-scorer in women’s soccer, three tallies away from tying U.S. legend and former club and country teammate Mia Hamm. Three goals from ending all the hype and getting back to the bigger picture: the team. ”I’m sure I’m going to be…

It’s fitting that Abby Wambach’s week started in Canada. With all the attention on the star U.S. striker centered around #ChasingMia — Wambach’s 155 goals are three off the all-time international mark held by Mia Hamm, a record that will inevitably fall in the coming weeks or months — the bigger picture for the reigning…

Nothing can erase what Sydney Leroux has gone through this week – nor what she says she endured at 2012 Olympic qualifying in Vancouver last January. The Boston Breakers and U.S. international forward was the recipient of some ugly, racially-charged tweets over the past six days after scoring in Sunday’s 3-0 win over Canada, the…

‘Rivalry’ is a funny word. It instantly sparks an emotional reaction; it’s polarizing. A rivalry exists between two parties that not only don’t get along, but have a history of encounters. To get technical, a rivalry is a “competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field.” By nature, rivalries can’t be…

In a league with eight clubs and a 22-game schedule for each team, there’s always a chance at redemption for a result that may have previously slipped away. For Seattle Reign FC, the wait to turn the table on FC Kansas City is a mere seven days. On Saturday, the two teams face off for…

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Since the NWSL schedule was released in mid-February, Saturday was supposed to be about Abby Wambach’s first home game with her hometown team, the Western New York Flash. Instead, it was the Heather O’Reilly show. The Boston Breakers midfielder scored once in each half to to lift her team to a 2-1…

The walkway to the main gate of Sahlen’s Stadium in Rochester, N.Y. is called Wambach Way, a reminder of just how endeared Abby Wambach is in Rochester. And that was dedicated before Wambach was even part of a team that would be playing there, never mind before a league even officially existed. She’s an A-list…
