Earlier in the day, Wambach and teammate Lauren Cheney stopped by the Early Show for an interview. CBS has decided not to post it online but instead provided the following quotes from the appearance:
Wambach on the fans: “The outpouring of support that we’ve gotten here since we’ve gotten home to the States has been unbelievable. Times Square, I mean I went for a walk last night, and I must have gotten stopped 100 times. Just congratulating us. People appreciate what we did. Hopefully, we inspired a country. The Olympics are just around the corner. Hopefully, we can bring home that gold.”
Wambach on not bringing home the World Cup: “This country was so supportive. We got so many great e-mails, text messages. Obviously, the people came out and supported us through this whole thing. We’re just so sorry not to have brought home the World Cup. But you know, we do a lot of things over there. We inspired people, and I think in the end those are the positives that we’re going to really take away from this.”
