Podcast: Abby Wambach farewell interview; Cap on USA's 2015

Grant Wahl interviews Abby Wambach ahead of the final match of her career on the newest Planet Fútbol Podcast.

Abby Wambach's playing career comes to an end in New Orleans on Wednesday night, as she rides off into the retirement sunset in the U.S. women's national team's friendly vs. China. 

We teased a clip of her interview with SI's Grant Wahl last week, but now listen to the entire interview, in which she reflects on her career and looks ahead to what's next in her life on this week's Planet Fútbol Podcast.

We also put a cap on the year for the U.S. men's and women's national teams as a 2015 of mixed results and storylines comes to a close.
