U.S. Women’s Soccer national team stars Abby Wambach and Hope Solo helped the American team win the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics with a 6-0-0 record – the first time this has happened for the team in an Olympic tournament. The U.S. won its third straight gold medal and fourth gold medal overall this year.
The U.S. team has played China once in 2012, scoring a 4-1 victory on Sunday, May 27 in front of a sell-out crowd at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. Alex Morgan scored twice, Wambach scored once and China knocked in an own goal. The rematch in Florida will be the 49th all-time meeting between the U.S. and China.
