Abby Wambach scored four goals and the World Cup-bound United States defeated Costa Rica 6-0 Sunday night for the team's fifth CONCACAF Women's Championship title.

The U.S. women had already secured a trip to next year's World Cup in Canada with a victory over Mexico in the semifinals of the eight-team, four-city tournament.

Wambach scored on a header in the fourth minute, then fed Carli Lloyd a header in the 17th to put the United States up 2-0. It was Lloyd's fifth goal of the tournament.

Wambach scored again off a cross from Lloyd in the 35th minute and added another header in the 41st, also with the assist from Lloyd.
