"After much deliberation and talking with my friends, family, teammates and our coaching staff, I've decided to finally bring my soccer career to an end," Wambach said in a statement. (Video via The National Press Club)
Wambach has 184 goals in 254 international matches — the most of any men's or women's player. She's a six-time U.S. soccer athlete of the year, 2011 Associated Press female athlete of the year, 2012 FIFA world player of the year, 2004 and 2012 gold medalist and a 2015 World Cup winner.
Wambach retires as one of the greatest international women's soccer player's ever.
"We just got to believe," Wambach said before the 2015 World Cup. "That's a wrap, for me."
