2015 Women’s World Cup Facts: Carli Lloyd…

~ Carli Lloyd is the first U.S. WNT player to score in four straight games in a World Cup. She netted a goal against China, Colombia and Germany and three against Japan.

~ Lloyd also became the first woman in a FIFA WWC to score a hat trick in a Final match and scored the fastest hat trick in Women’s World Cup history.

~ Lloyd also became the third U.S. Woman to score a hat trick in WWC play: Carin Jennings Gabarra netted three goals against Germany in 1991 and Akers scored five against Chinese Taipei that same year.

~ Lloyd’s goal in the third minute was the fastest goal scored in a WWC Final game.

~ Lloyd scored both U.S. goals in the 2012 Olympic gold medal game (a 2-1 win over Japan), and the sole goal in the 2008 gold-medal game (1-0 over Brazil). With her three goals against Japan tonight, she became the first American to score in three major-tournament finals.

Quite possibly the greatest goal we've seen in Women's World Cup play.. Carli Lloyd from Midfield…oh YEAH!!!!
