Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Abby Wambach scored twice to reach the 150-goal plateau for her career Wednesday night, and the United States women's national team defeated China, 4-0, at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Wambach opened the scoring in the 20th minute and added her second goal in the 63rd minute to become just the second woman to score 150 international goals. Former United States forward Mia Hamm had 158 goals in her career.
Carli Lloyd Amy Rodriguez also scored for the United States, which closes out a busy year with a third straight friendly against China on Saturday in Boca Raton, Fla. The United States won the first friendly, 2-0, last weekend.
