The ladies will play Mexico in an international friendly at RFK Stadium Tuesday, their first game since defeating South Korea 5-0 in New York on June 20.

In that match, striker Abby Wambach scored twice to pass United States soccer legend Mia Hamm as the world's all-time leading goal scorer among women.

The United States has not lost a match in 2013, going 9-0-2 in 11 matches this year. They're the top ranked team in the world and are riding a 34-game unbeaten streak which dates back to March 5.

The national team has not played in Washington since May 10, 2008, when they routed Canada 6-2 at RFK. The women have never lost in D.C., going 7-0 in their previous seven visits to the nation's capital.

Mexico dropped its last decision to the United States on Jan. 24, 2012, a 4-0 loss in a 2012 Olympic qualifier held in Vancouver.

Tuesday's game kicks off at 8 p.m. and will be aired on Fox Sports 1.
