NBCRightNow - Abby Wambach, the leading career scorer - male or female - in international soccer, announced her retirement from soccer on Tuesday shortly after the U.S. national team celebrated its Women's World Cup victory at the White House.
    
Wambach, 35, said before the World Cup this past summer in Canada that she wanted to cap her 15-year career with the game's most prestigious championship. She got her wish.
    
Wambach, who grew up in Rochester, New York, has appeared in 252 international matches with 184 goals.
    
She will play the final four matches of the national team's 10-game victory tour before stepping away from the team. Her final match will be Dec. 16 against China in New Orleans.
