Soccer Star Credits Her Teammates

Abby Wambach, a forward (or striker) on the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, holds the world record for most international goals, for both female and male players. In her career she has scored an astounding 177 goals, many of them on her signature move—a diving header. But Wambach quickly credits her teammates for her success. Wambach has said, "I've never scored a goal without getting a pass from someone else."
