[USA-CHINA] Abby Wambach scored the 149th and 150th goals of her career to lead the USA to a 4-0 victory over China in front of 15,643 fans at Houston's BBVA Compass Stadium in the ninth match of the 2012 Fan Tribute Tour.

Midfielder Carli Lloyd added her 43rd career goal during her 150th career international appearance, and Amy Rodriguez contributed a late goal as the USA improved to 7-0-2 on the Fan Tribute Tour.
