All That's Left for Carli Lloyd to Do Is Confront the End
There's little else for the U.S. icon to accomplish as her storied career comes to a close, but contemplating her final cap with the USWNT is new territory.
By now, the numbers and achievements are the stuff of legend, even if the exact figures continue to change down to the final minute Carli Lloyd plays.
There are the 315 caps, 134 goals and 64 assists for the U.S. women's national team, with the former figure at the very least surely to grow by one Tuesday night in Minneapolis. There are the two FIFA World Player of the Year awards, the two Women's World Cup titles, the two Olympic gold medals. There are the game-winning goals in two Olympic gold medal games and the iconic hat trick in the 2015 Women's World Cup final.
