    I guess Abby Wambach saves more of her money then the very cocky Alex Morgan (remember her tea sipping imitation against England).
    The last I heard about net worths: Abby: 4 million, Alex: 3 million.

    The last I heard, Laure Boulleau's net worth was less than one million dollars.
    With her salary, I thought that she would have more of a net worth in the one million+ range (especially now that she is retired).
