Abby Wambach is playing the final game of her career on Wednesday night. So let’s reminisce back to the World Cup and her unforgetable moment of celebration after beating Japan 5-2 to win the championship.
After the final whistle blew and the US women’s national team became World Cup champs for the first time since 1999, it was no surprise that Wambach sprinted toward the stands to embrace her wife, Sarah Huffman.
Wambach and Huffman were married in 2013, and the loving embrace they shared after the game had people freaking out with joy and happiness.
