FILE - In this Dec. 16, 2015, file photo, U.S. forward Abby Wambach reacts during the first half of an international friendly soccer match against China in New Orleans. Wambach says she abused alcohol and prescription drugs for years until her arrest for driving under the influence in April.
"I was stubborn and I was in denial," soccer's most prolific international goal scorer told The Associated Press. "I didn't want to face the truth."
In "Forward," her memoir set for release on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, the retired U.S. national team star recounts her career, from the lows of losing her high school championship to the highs of winning the Women's World Cup last year.  (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert, File)
