The two were married Saturday on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. In a post Wednesday on Twitter, Wambach said, "Sarah and I wanted to thank everyone for all the love and support. We couldn't be happier. What an amazing week it's been. .honeymoon"

TMZ first reported the wedding, and said U.S. teammates Alex Morgan and Sydney Leroux were among the attendees.

The U.S. women's next game is Oct. 20 against Australia in San Antonio, Texas.
