Watch a Columbian soccer player punch Abby Wambach in the face

Abby Wambach, one of the stars of the women's soccer club for Team USA, certainly had an interesting game yesterday against Columbia. On one hand, she broke the record for most goals at the Olympics by an American women's soccer player and helped carry the good guys (or girls, in this case) to a guaranteed spot in the quarterfinals of the soccer tourney in London. On the other hand, she took a nice cheap shot to the face in the 39th minute from Lady Andrade. Amazingly, the referees missed the punch and thus no foul was called. Let's go to the videotape.

Wambach, as you would expect, was livid after the game, saying that she wanted Andrade tossed from the London Games. Andrade, for what it's worth, said it was an accident as well as saying through an interpretor that that's "the way things happen in football."

You know what the best part of all this is? After Wambach scored the next goal in the 73rd minute, check out her celebration:
