USA RIDES WAMBACH GOAL TO BEAT NIGERIA 1-0: ON TO ROUND OF 16!

Abby Wambach has sued over artificial turf and complained about it regularly, becoming a spiritual descendant of that great philosopher and former slugger Dick Allen, who memorably said, “If a horse can’t eat it, I don’t want to play on it.”

The Americans will play Monday in Edmonton, Alberta, against a third-place group finisher that will be determined Wednesday.
