Today is Abby Wambach’s birthday. The all-star leading goal scorer in women’s soccer history turns 34. Abby Wambach gave everyone a scare on Saturday, when she left the Flash game with a knee injury.

On Monday, Wambach said she will be “all good” and will be back in a few days.

Abby suffered the injury early in the first half when colliding into a Houston defender. She was down for several minutes, was able to run off the field, but exited the game in the 24th minute. At the time, no one knew the severity of the injury, but Abby has put minds at ease that she is okay.
