US women's soccer team to play Costa Rica in Sept

Tuesday - 7/31/2012, 11:43am  ET

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - The U.S. women's soccer team has lined up its first post-Olympics match.

U.S. Soccer said Tuesday that the Americans will face Costa Rica in Rochester, N.Y., on Sept. 1.

Rochester is the hometown of forward Abby Wambach, who is chasing Mia Hamm's record for international goals.

The team typically plays in a U.S. celebration tour after the Olympics. The players aren't sure which color medal they'll be celebrating _ or whether they'll have a medal at all.

The Americans have advanced past the first round at the London Games and will play in the quarterfinals Friday.
