    Carli Lloyd, U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Captain, Two-Time World Cup Champion (2015 & 2019), and Two-Time FIFA Player of the Year (2015 & 2016)

    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 Sky Blue FC in NJ. A two-time Olympic Gold Medalist (2008 and 2012), 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 four Women’s World Cup tournaments (2007, 2011, 2015, and 2019) and is a two-time World Cup Champion (2015 and 2019). She has been awarded the most prestigious and highest award in soccer being named two-time FIFA World Player of the Year (2015 and 2016), only four other americans recieveing the award. She became the only American to score multiple goals in three separate Olympic Games (2008, 2012, 2016). Currently she has scored over 115 + goals, in almost 300 games played.  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 scoring from midfield was widely described as one of the greatest goals of all time. Lloyd became the first player ever to score three goals in a FIFA Women's World Cup final and the second soccer player ever to score a hat-trick in a FIFA World Cup Final. 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.  In July 2019, the USWNT claimed its record fourth FIFA Women’s World Cup title, making Carli a twotime World Cup champion and she became the first player to score in six straight Women's World Cup games. 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 her coach/mentor James Galanis, 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. In 2017 she was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame. She published a best-selling memoir in the fall of 2016 titled “When Nobody Was Watching.” Carli serves as mentor and mental toughness coach for her former youth club, the Medford Strikers.  She married her High School sweetheart, Brian in 2016 and still lives in NJ.
