Hope Solo set the U.S. national team record for career shutouts, and Alex Morgan and Abby Wambach each scored twice for an 8-0 exhibition victory over Mexico at Rio Tinto Stadium on Saturday night.

Sydney Leroux, Heather O'Reilly and Whitney Engen also scored as the U.S, improved to 28-1-1 against Mexico and extended the women's winning streak to 86 straight games on American soil.

Solo posted her 72nd career shutout, passing Briana Scurry (1994-2008). Solo has played in 154 overall international matches.

It was Wambach's 41st multigoal match and her 34th career game with two.
