- A Conversation With Carli-Success On and Off The Field
Carli Lloyd is an American professional soccer player for the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team and the National Women’s Soccer League’s Houston Dash. A two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Carli holds the unique distinction of scoring the game-winning goals in the finals at both the 2008 Games in Beijing and the 2012 Games in London. She also represented the United States at the past three Women’s World Cup tournaments.
At the 2015 Women’s World Cup, Carli led the U.S. team in record-setting fashion, bringing the World Cup back to the U.S. for the first time since 1999. During the final match against Japan, Carli scored a historic hat trick, with all three goals occurring within the first 16 minutes of the game. Her third and final goal of the game was widely described as one of the greatest shots of all time. For her performance in the tournament, Carli received the Golden Ball Trophy, awarded to the best player of the tournament, and the Silver Boot for her six tournament goals and one assist. Following her extraordinary achievements, noted media and soccer analysts around the world called Carli’s performance among the best-ever on a world stage. With a work ethic second to none, Lloyd has played in over 200 matches for the U.S. Women’s National Team and has scored 67 goals.
Off the field, Carli is a role model who empowers fans to never give up on achieving their goals. She almost gave up on her own soccer dream, but with the help and motivation from those close to her (and from the lessons she took from legends Michael Jordan and Muhammad Ali), Carli continued her journey and has never looked back!
Carli was raised in Delran, NJ and attended nearby Rutgers University, where she set records as the Scarlet Knights all-time leader in points, goals and shots. In 2013, Lloyd was inducted into the Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni.
