The USA Women’s soccer team is off to an incredible start in the final game of the World Cup, Carli even made a goal from half field!
The USA Women’s National Team is absolutely killing it in their highly anticipated game against Japan! Carli Lloyd, 32, scored not one but TWO goals within the first five minutes of the game. It was one of the most incredible moments World Cup history!
Carli is leading her team to victory! Carli, who currently plays for the Houston Dash soccer team, scored two amazing goals for the United States in the first five minutes of the game. Then after Lauren Holiday scored the third goal, Carli came back with a jaw-dropping goal from halfway down the field! Carli is no stranger to winning big games! She is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and scored the winning goals in the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympic games!
Carli is from South New Jersey, she’s engaged to Brian Hollins and they plan to get married after the Summer Olympics in 2016. “That way. I’ll be able to have a clear head with nothing else to worry about.” She has also said that she’s great on the field but she’s afraid of public speaking: “As I’ve gotten older and I’ve been in front of people more, I’ve gotten used to it. It’s a different feeling than stepping out onto the field and doing what I do best. But I now enjoy speaking and telling people my story.”
HollywoodLifers, we are SO proud of our ladies and hope they win!
