Mia Hamm Pays Tribute to 'Dynamic' Carli Lloyd After Retirement (Exclusive)

Carli Lloyd's soccer career came to an end this weekend when NJ/NY Gotham FC lost to the Chicago Red Stars in the National Women's Soccer League playoffs. She will go down as one of the best United States Women's National Team players of all time, but what does the all-time great think about her career? PopCulture.com recently caught up with Mia Hamm, who shared her thoughts on Lloyd. 

"Carli was one of the most historic dynamic players ever to wear the US women's jersey," Hamm told PopCulture. "The goals that she scored, iconic and forever changed the landscape of our national teams. She worked incredibly hard every single day, recommitting herself to being the best that she could be. My only hope, and she's made it clear, she wants to stay connected to the game, and I hope she does because her knowledge, her insight, as well as her reputation are so important to continue to help our sport grow.
