Abby Wambach scored her 155th international goal, moving within three of tying Mia Hamm's record, and the U.S. women's team wasted a two-goal lead in a 3-3 exhibition tie against Germany on Friday night in Offenbach.

Playing on the 100th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Soccer Federation, Wambach put the U.S. ahead in the 47th minute off a cross from Megan Rapinoe.

Rapinoe sent a half-volley inside the far post in the 58th.

Germany, second to the U.S. in the FIFA rankings, got a goal from Kim Kulig in the 53rd, and Alex Morgan gave the Americans a 3-1 lead in the 71st from Lauren Cheney's deep cross.

Celia Okoyino da Mbabi converted a penalty kick in the 85th and Anja Mittag tied it two minutes later. Morgan's header was saved off the goal line by Verena Faisst in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
