After being named to the U.S. Women's National Team for the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, her header in extra time against Brazil gave the U.S. team a 2-1 victory and the gold medal. She finished the year with 31 goals and 13 assists and fourth in the voting for the FIFA Women's World Player of the Year.
In the 2007 Women's World Cup, Wambach scored six goals in six matches. In the quarterfinal match against England, she became the twentieth American woman, and thirtieth American soccer player overall, to reach the 100 cap plateau. Wambach was named to the 2008 U.S. Olympic Women's Soccer Team, but in the final match before the Olympics on July 16, she broke her left leg in a collision, which prevented her from playing in the Beijing Olympics.
