VILA REAL DE SANTO ANTONIO, Portugal — Abby Wambach scored her 88th international goal Wednesday to help the United States win the Algarve Cup for a record sixth time with a 2-1 victory over Denmark.

Wambach scored the winning goal in the 49th minute, sprinting down the right flank and breaking two tackles before exchanging passes with Natasha Kai and sending a low drive into the corner.

Kai gave the Americans the lead with a header in the 14th, but Denmark's Cathrine Sorensen scored in the 30th.

The United States, which plays in an Olympic qualifying tournament in Mexico next month, scored 12 goals in four games, improving on its previous record of 11 in the 2000 tournament.
