There can’t be any arguments about how the USWNT dominated the whole women’s soccer scene for the last decade. They won the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics; in addition, to two World Cups in 2015 and 2019. One player that was significant to their success was Carli Lloyd. Winning the Olympic gold medal back in 2008, she provided the experience and leadership for players like Alex Morgan to flourish.
Hence, her retirement leaves a huge void for the USWNT. Likewise, to end her perfect career, she leads the goal scoring and assists charts for her national team, despite this being her last year in soccer. What a player!
