Abby Erceg won 129 caps for New Zealand and competed at three World Cups.

New Zealand women's captain Abby Erceg has launched a broadside at New Zealand Football while announcing her retirement from the international game.

United States-based Erceg made her New Zealand debut in 2006 and was named skipper in 2014. She has played 129 internationals and competed at three World Cups.

This match and last week's 2-0 win in Cuba were played with an eye on Mexico and Costa Rica when the final round of World Cup qualifying begins next month, of course. So while Klinsmann lamented the result in his opening...

Lynden Gooch made his U.S. debut as a second-half substitute in a match played exactly a month before the Americans face Mexico to open their final round of World Cup qualifying on Nov. 11.

Goalkeeper William Yarbrough kept New Zealand scoreless over 45 minutes in his first international start and...
