As a senior, Lloyd was named a Parade All-American. Recruited to play soccer at Rutgers University, Lloyd enrolled and excelled during her four years on the team.

At Rutgers Lloyd earned First-Team All-Big East honors for four years straight and was named a NSCAA All-American in three out of her four years.

Lloyd earned a spot on the U.S. National team in 2005 and has been a staple on it ever since. Lloyd scored twice en route to an Olympic gold in 2008 and once during the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in which the U.S. came in second.

Lloyd will be competing in her second Olympics as a member of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.



The U.S. women’s soccer team avenged one of its toughest losses by topping Japan 2-1 to win the gold medal as Carli Lloyd scored both goals. The Americans had lost a heartbreaker to Japan last year in the women’s World Cup final.
