[USA-MEXICO] Opportunities for Mexican national team players in the NWSL and U.S. collegiate system were supposed to help it narrow the gap with the neighboring United States, but the NWSL and U.S. collegiate system have only boosted the USA's considerable depth, which it showed off Tuesday night in a 7-0 win over Mexico -- its biggest win the series since a 7-0 win in 2002.

Sydney Leroux scored four goals in a span of 20 minutes in the first half and Abby Wambach added a goal and three assists as the USA extended its unbeaten streak to 35 games dating back to March 2012 and its home unbeaten streak to 73 games dating back to 2004.

During this year's run, new coach Tom Sermanni has not hesitated to call up young players from the NWSL and college ranks.

Midfielder Erika Tymrak, the 2013 NWSL Rookie of the Year, earned her first cap on Tuesday, as did FC Kansas City teammate Leigh Ann Robinson. Another FC Kansas City player, rookie Kristie Mewis, set up Wambach for the first goal from her overlapping left-back position.

North Carolina senior Crystal Dunn started at right back, and Virginia junior Morgan Briancame off the bench to score the seventh goal of the game to the delight of her Cavalier teammates who had traveled up from Charlottesville.

Mexico started three collegians on its backline -- Bianca Sierra (Auburn), Christina Murillo (Michigan) and Ari Romero (Nebraska) -- but they were no match against Wambach and Leroux.

Sept. 3 in Washington, D.C.
USA 7 Mexico 0.Goals: Wambach 11, Leroux 21, 22, 3, 41, Buehler 55, Brian 72.
USA --Solo (Barnhart, 46); Dunn (Robinson, 56), Rampone (Buehler, 52), Sauerbrunn, Mewis; O'Reilly, Lloyd (Averbuch, 55), Holiday, Tymrak (Brian, 70); Leroux, Wambach.
Mexico --Santiago; Romero, Murillo, Sierra, Robles; Rangel (Mercado, 32), Worbis; Dominguez (Mayor, 46), Cuellar (Solis, 54), Ocampo, Perez (Huerta, 63).
Att.:12,594.

    There was no reason why Vanessa DiBernardo was left on the bench in a 7-0 game with Wambach, O'Reilly and Leroux playing all 90. Why not get all of them a cap?
