Natasha Kai and Abby Wambach score as the U.S. wins 2-1 over Denmark.

Why didn't Greg Ryan play Kai in the World Cup? Oh right, he's a moron. And guess who was in goal for the championship game? That's right, our #1 goalkeeper, Hope Solo. Rot in hell Greg Ryan. You stole our third World Cup right from under our noses!

WaPo: US Soccer Wins Algarve Cup

VILA REAL DE SANTO ANTONIO, Portugal -- Abby Wambach scored her 88th international goal Wednesday to help the United States win the Algarve Cup for a record sixth time with a 2-1 victory over Denmark.

Wambach scored the winning goal in the 49th minute, sprinting down the right flank and breaking two tackles before exchanging passes with Natasha Kai and sending a low drive into the corner.

Kai gave the Americans the lead with a header in the 14th, but Denmark's Cathrine Sorensen scored in the 30th.
