Carli Lloyd accomplished a feat so rare only 3 soccer players have ever pulled it off, but USWNT legend Abby Wambach wasn't surprised

Carli Lloyd made her 300th appearance for the US Women's National Team Saturday afternoon, joining an exclusive group of just three women's soccer legends — all of whom played for the United States — who have ever accomplished the remarkable feat.

And even though it's undoubtedly an incredible accomplishment, Abby Wambach — who, despite being the USWNT's all-time leading goal scorer to this day, never reached 300 caps in her illustrious career — was hardly surprised that Lloyd was able to pull it off.

"Carli Lloyd — she is a true professional," Wambach told Insider. "I don't know if there has been another person who has completely dedicated themselves like Carli has."
