In a powerful ad for Gatorade, Abby Wambach hands over the reigns to the next generation.

Wambach, who is openly lesbian, announced her retirement from professional soccer in October and played her last game on Wednesday in New Orleans.

A two-time Olympic gold medalist, FIFA Women's World Cup champion and six-time winner of the U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year award, Wambach has played for the U.S. women's national soccer team for 14 years.

In the 1-minute ad, titled Forget Me, Wambach wants the next generation to move forward by forgetting her.

“I want to leave a legacy where the ball keeps rolling forward,” she says in the ad. “Where the next generation accomplishes things so great that I am no longer remembered.”

In a statement, Gatorade called Wambach “one of the greatest American soccer players to ever step on the field.”

“Pushing the sport forward, while championing the fight for equal rights, her impact extends far beyond the field. Yet, as she faces retirement, her focus is solely on the next generation. Urging them to achieve things so great that she is all but forgotten,” the company said.
