"Understanding that most of the game has nothing to do with kicking a ball, is one step closer to understanding the game" - From Umbro ad

"Oh the places you'll go!

There is fun to be done!

There are goals to be scored.

There are games to be won.

And the magical things you can do with that ball will make

you the winning-est winner of all.”

Dr. Seuss

Abby Wambach's Secret to Success


Abby Wambach's Secret to Success

Women's Soccer News: Hard Work is Abby Wambach's Secret to Success
What does it take to become one of the best players of all time? Abby Wambach has certainly done that, through a combination of hard work, natural talent, and iron determination. She has been recognized at every level of the game, and continues to lead the U.S. Women’s National Team on the field and off. Wambach was gracious enough to take time out recently to talk about her success and what young players can do to reach the top of their game – whatever that might be.
When Abby Wambach first took the field for the U.S. Women’s National Team, it was clear that there was something special about her. At 5’11” she towered over most of her teammates as well as the opposition – an advantage she has put to good use as one of the best “aerialists” in the game. She is undoubtedly one of, if not the most famous female player on the pitch today and is one of only two Americans, along with Mia Hamm, to have been named FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year. Her 165 career international goals rank as best in the world, surpassing Hamm in late 2013, and her 215 caps put her at No. 6 on the U.S. WNT.
Wambach is at ease on the field and talking to reporters off the pitch. In San Diego for the USA v China PR match, SoccerNation News editor Diane Scavuzzo had the opportunity to chat about passion for the beautiful game and what if the “Holy Grail” of player development exists.
Diane Scavuzzo: You have had an amazing career with the U.S. Women’s National Team. What advice would you give to a young player who would like to one day grow up to be like you and represent the United States?
Abby Wambach: Basically, it’s not something that just happens overnight. You have to work hard at something that you are passionate about, especially if you choose to go down the athletic road. You have to train hard and you have to eat right.
In order to get to these ranks you have to study hard, go to school – and it’s a process. It just doesn’t happen with a snap of your fingers.
You have to dedicate yourself, even when you don’t even know it’s a possibility that it could happen.
Even when you think that never in a million years could you dream of playing for your own country in the World Cup and Olympics. Those are the moments that define the people who have that passion and are willing to lose everything for it. And those are also the moments that separate the people who choose to go in a different direction in life.
Diane Scavuzzo: When you were 10 or 12 years old, did you have that passion?
Abby Wambach: Yes, Absolutely. Of course, as a young kid you want to have that normal life where you get to go to all your friends’ birthday parties, but no, you’re off in a car going to soccer camps.
Of course you have to have some talent; you have to be good enough to get to where you need to go. You have to be able to manage that and be critical when you need to be critical, and be easy on yourself when you need to be easy on yourself. There are so many factors, and I wish I knew the equation.
Diane Scavuzzo: Was there any one coach who made a big difference, or was it just the path you took?
Abby Wambach: I think it was a compilation of many coaches. My high school coach was awesome – she taught me about life, not necessarily the game. As I went on in my college career and into the Youth National Teams I found I gained more knowledge. Then with my athleticism and my natural talent I was able turn that into what seems like a lifelong career.
Diane Scavuzzo: Everybody wants to know if there’s a Holy Grail of success. What would you say to that?
Abby Wambach: I would say work ethic, for sure.
I think in anything that you do, if you work hard at it and you stick to it, then even if you don’t make it to the World Cup or the Olympic level, it doesn’t mean you failed.
If you work hard at something and you believe in yourself, you can look at yourself at the end of the day and say you did the very best you could. Sometimes that’s what life is really about.
