[U.S. WOMEN] The U.S. women’s national team got two goals from Abby Wambach on headers to defeat Sweden, 3-0, Saturday evening at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn.

After drawing 1-1 with Sweden earlier in the week, the No. 1 ranked USA put on an impressive display against the fourth-ranked team in the world as Megan Rapinoe opened the scoring when she finished off a rebound in the 33rd minute and Wambach scored career goals No. 108 and 109 with her head.

The goals gave her 10 goals in 13 games since returning from her broken leg.

Next up following the WPS season: 2011 FIFA World Cup qualifying, which will take place in late October and early November (exact dates are still to be determined).

“We scored three and didn’t concede any goals so I think overall the performance was really good,” said Coach Pia Sundhage. “Sweden is a really good team but I think we controlled the game pretty much from the beginning.”
