We may be watching the greatest of all time take shape before us.
We may be watching the 2 greatest of all time. Abby Wambach has 132 goals in 173 caps for the WNT. She had 66 goals in her first 84 caps. She's #2 on the all-time list and will pass Mia Hamm at 158 goals in the next 2 years probably.
Alex Morgan has 18 goals in 33 caps, but now that she's getting 90 minutes/cap, her scoring rate will go up. She's so fast and strong that the defenders literally bounce off her trying to knock her down. And she's a freakin' assassin striking the ball into the back of the net. Her headers could use work, I think. Abby Wambach is the master there.
