US Women's National team striker Abby Wambach scored four goals in the first half against South Korea on Thursday night in Harrison, N.J., as she became the all-time leading goal scorer in women's international soccer history.

Wambach's 29th-minute header, her third goal of the night, gave her 159 international goals, breaking a record set by former national team star Mia Hamm.

Wambach scored the first goal just 10 minutes into the game and then headed in her second at the 19-minute mark. Her record-breaking goal came off a corner kick struck by Megan Rapinoe as she continued her historic night. She scored one more before halftime for good measure.
