ATLANTA (AP) - Abby Wambach scored her record 165th international goal and the U.S. women's soccer team beat Russia 8-0 in an exhibition Thursday night to extend its unbeaten streak to 42 games.

Shutting out Russia for the second time in six days by a combined 15-0 score, the world's No. 1-ranked team improved to 36-0-6 since March 2012. The Americans are 70-0-10 in their last 80 home games.

With the United States up 2-0 on own goals in the 11th and 50th minutes, Amy Rodriguez took Heather O'Reilly's pass from the right side and volleyed it in with her left leg for a 3-0 lead in the 52nd minute.

Wambach, scoring her 40th goal in the Americans' last 48 games, made it 4-0 in the 54th, taking Megan Rapinoe's pass from the left side and bowling over goalkeeper Maria Zhamanakova in the penalty box for the score.
