Abby Wambach fractured both her tibia and fibula bones in her left leg and will miss the upcoming Olympics. The play happened in the first half of the United States' 1-0 win over Brazil.
Wambach, who was looking for goal number 100 in her storied career, will have surgery on Thursday and will likely require a minimum of 12 weeks to recover.
Losing a player of her caliber damages the United States' chances of walking away with even a bronze medal. Amy Rodriguez and Natasha Kai will probably have more pressure on them to put goals away but as Andrea was saying earlier nobody is the big power forward that Wambach is.
