(AP) Abby Wambach extended her world record with her 161st international goal, Sydney Leroux scored four times in the first half, and the next generation for U.S. women's soccer blended nicely with the old guard Tuesday night as the Americans thumped Mexico 7-0 in a friendly at RFK Stadium.


Rachel Buehler and Morgan Brian also scored as the U.S. squad reconvened after a 2-month break while the National Women's Soccer League wrapped up its inaugural season. With the next World Cup two years away, the match also gave coach Tom Sermanni a chance to mix in some young faces to the storied team, with two players making their national team debuts.


The Americans, ranked No. 1 in the world, ran their overall unbeaten streak to 35 games and their home unbeaten streak to 73. They are 27-1-1 all-time against 24th-ranked Mexico.
