When Abby Wambach wants a goal, she gets it—even if she’s on the bench.

The always-fiery 35-year-old folk hero of Team USA rallied the troops before the second of half of Friday’s World Cup match with China. After a scoreless opening 45 minutes, Wambach, who did not start the game, told her team that in “the first 10 minutes, we get a f--king goal!” (Warning: Language in the clip below is NSFW):

Carli Lloyd heard Wambach loud and clear, and she buried a header in the 51st minute that would go on to decide the team’s 1-0 victory.
