VANCOUVER, Canada (Jan. 29, 2012) – U.S. striker Abby Wambach moved to No. 2 on the all-time goal scoring list, Alex Morgan tallied two goals and two assists, and the U.S. Women’s National Team defeated Canada 4-0 on Sunday in front of a sold-out crowd of 25,427 at BC Place to take the championship of the 2012 CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Both teams sealed their berths to the 2012 London Olympics with semifinal wins last Friday, but that did nothing to temper the emotion and energy the USA and Canada showcased in front of a CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying-record crowd for a final.
