Lloyd rebounds from knee injury to play a full 90 for US

Far from deterred by a lengthy layoff after getting her left knee scoped, Carli Lloyd is back with a steadfast resolve as the United States pushes toward the Tokyo Olympics.

Lloyd’s recovery work was on display Monday night in Florida when she played the full 90 minutes in the team’s 4-0 victory over Colombia.

Not bad for a veteran player who is 38 and hadn’t played since last March.

“I’m pretty happy with where I’m at physically, after an injury,” she said. “You know, having somewhat of a minor scope, I guess as people say, isn’t really minor. So it took me a ways to get back and rebuild myself again.”
