[USA-CANADA WOMEN] Abby Wambach scored two goals to give the USA a 3-0 victory over Canada in a friendly before 18,570 fans in Portland, Ore., on Thursday night. The crowd at Jeld-Wen Field was the largest to watch the U.S. women at home since the farewell tour for retiring stars Mia Hamm, Julie Foudy and Joy Fawcett in 2004.

Megan Rapinoe, who starred at the University of Portland, twice hit the crossbar in the first half before Wambach won the game with goals in the 63rd and 70th minutes that gave her 125 career goals.

Alex Morgan clinched the win with a goal in the 90th minute.

The USA will continue preparations for 2012 Olympic qualifying with a friendly on Nov. 19 against Sweden at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

The Concacaf qualifying tournament will take place Jan. 19-29 in Vancouver.

Sept. 22 in Portland, Ore.

    Hey, they were actually fun to watch! Good. high paced possession soccer - Barca style - with MANY chances in both halves. Still need more composure and guile in the final 30, we can't always rely on Abby to pull us through. Is it just me or does Amy R. always seem to tighten at the critical moment? Brings a lot to the table but may lack the assassin's heart. Hopefully with all the chances she'll get past it. Still wonder why Natasha Kai, Lori Chulupny and Kia McNeill aren't on the roster. All high quality.
