Fired up

Artfully used, the f-bomb can be a very effective motivational tool.

USA star Abby Wambach knows the power of dropping a well-timed expletive to inspire a team to victory.

The fiery 35-year-old rallied the troops just before kick-off for the second half of USA’s world cup clash against China.

After both teams failed to find the net in the first 45 minutes, Wambach, sternly told her team that in “the first 10 minutes, we get a f–king goal!”

Depsite the fact she started the match from the subs bench, her teammates took her instructions on board. Carli Lloyd smashed in header in the 51st minute that ended up sealing the win for USA.
