The 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup Final was a professional women's football match that took place on 5 July 2015 at BC Place, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, to determine the winner of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. It was played between Japan and the United States, in a rematch of the 2011 final. The stakes were high for both sides: if the United States won the match, it would be the only country to have won in three Women's World Cup finals; if Japan had won instead, then it would be the first football team, men's or women's, to win twice under the same coach since Vittorio Pozzo led Italy to victory in the 1934 World Cup and the 1938 World Cup. Ultimately, the United States won 5–2, winning its first title in 16 years and becoming the first team to win three Women's World Cup finals.

Lloyd began playing soccer at age five. [7] Of her exposure to soccer at a young age, Lloyd's mother, Pamela said, "At that age, it was coed, and Carli was hanging with the boys. She always loved it and showed a lot of ability from an early age, but she also has always worked hard." [8] Lloyd has a brother named Stephen, and a sister, Ashley. [9] Lloyd attended the opening U.S. match of the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, which inspired her to play for the national team. [10]

The Big East Conference was a collegiate athletics conference that consisted of as many as 16 universities in the eastern half of the United States from 1979 to 2013. The conference's members participated in 24 NCAA sports. The conference had a history of success at the national level in basketball throughout its history, while its shorter football program, created by inviting one college and four other "associate members" into the conference, resulted in two national championships.

During her freshman season, Lloyd started every match and was the team's leading scorer with 15 goals for a total of 37 points. She was named to Soccer America's All-Freshman Team and was the first Rutgers player to earn Big East Rookie of the Year honors.

[18] She made only one appearance for the club. [11]

The WPS Years, 2009–2011

With the return of a top-flight women's professional soccer league to the United States via Women's Professional Soccer, Lloyd's playing rights were allocated to the Chicago Red Stars in 2008. [19] During the league's inaugural season, she started in 14 of her 16 appearances for Chicago playing a total of 1,313 minutes on the pitch. [20] She scored two goals: one in the 23rd minute of her team's 4–0 win over the Boston Breakers on April 25; [21] and the other during the 24th minute of a 3–1 defeat of the Los Angeles Sol on August 2.

Following the conclusion of the season, Lloyd was declared a free agent and subsequently signed with her home state club and 2009 WPS champions, Sky Blue FC, for the 2010 season. [24] [25] In April 2010, during a match against her former team, Chicago Red Stars, Lloyd slipped and broke her ankle. [26] The injury kept her off the pitch for most of the season although she did return for two games in September. [20]

In December 2010, Lloyd signed with expansion team Atlanta Beat for the 2011 season. [27] Of her signing, Beat head coach James Galanis said, "She is a fantastic midfielder and someone who is fully focused on the game. I have known her from her college days, and I have had the opportunity to train her and improve her game individually. She has made a lot of sacrifices off the field to reach her dreams, and she is going to bring a lot of professionalism to the team." [28] Lloyd scored two goals in her ten appearances for the Beat. She scored the team's lone goal in a 4–1 defeat by the Boston Breakers on April 9. [29] Her second goal on the season was an equalizer during the 70th minute of a 2–2 draw against the Western New York Flash.

[33] She scored her first goal in a match against her former club, Sky Blue FC, helping the Flash win 3–0.

[39] During the Flash's semi-final match against Sky Blue FC, Lloyd scored both of the Flash's game-winning goals: one in the 33rd minute and the second coming during stoppage time.

The three match ban she received for violent conduct ran for the remainder of her loan stay. [46]

Sky Blue FC, 2018–

On January 18, 2018, Lloyd was traded to the Sky Blue FC along with Janine Beckie by the Dash in a three-team trade with the Chicago Red Stars and Sky Blue FC.

During the quarterfinal match against England on September 22, the U.S. won 3–0. All three goals were scored within 12 minutes. [56] The U.S. faced Brazil in the semi-final in what would become a controversial and game-changing match for the team. Coach Greg Ryan decided to bench starting goalkeeper, Hope Solo, and instead started Brianna Scurry, a veteran goalkeeper who had started in three World Cups and two Olympics, but who had started very few matches since the 2004 Olympics. The U.S. was defeated 4–0 by Brazil. [57] The loss relegated them to a final match against Norway, which they won 4–1, to secure third place standing at the tournament. [58] [59] Lloyd started three of the five games in which she played at the tournament. [11]

Throughout 2007, Lloyd started 13 of the 23 matches in which she played. She ranked third on the team in scoring with nine goals and three assists. [11]

[60]

Lloyd was named the 2008 U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year along with Tim Howard. [61] She was on the starting lineup in all 35 games in which she played in 2008, tying for the team lead in matches started during the year. Her 2,781 minutes on the pitch for the U.S. ranked third on the team in minutes played. Her nine goals and nine assists resulted in her best scoring year yet on the national team. [11]

From Injury Recovery to 100th Career Cap and CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifying, 2009–2010

In 2009, the U.S. national team competed in eight games, of which Lloyd was on the starting lineup in five. [11] At the 2010 Algarve Cup, Lloyd scored the game-opening goal in the final helping the U.S. clinch the championship title after defeating Germany 3–2. [62]

Although she suffered a broken ankle in the fourth game of the 2010 WPS Season while playing for Sky Blue FC, [63] she played in 15 matches for the United States in 2010, starting 14. [11] Lloyd started all five games at the 2010 CONCACAF Women's World Cup Qualifying Tournament, scoring two goals, including the United States' lone goal during the championship match. She ended the tournament with five assists and was named the Player of the Match three times during the tournament. [11] After the U.S. finished third at the tournament, they traveled to Italy to vie for a place at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup in the UEFA-CONCACAF play-off against Italy. Playing every minute of the series, Lloyd scored three goals with five assists during the series. She earned her 100th career cap during the second leg of the series. [11]

Lloyd scored the lone goal for the U.S. in the opening match loss to Sweden. In the championship match, the U.S. defeated Canada 2–0 with Lloyd scoring the first goal and being named Player of the Match. [11]

At the 2011 Algarve Cup, Lloyd scored three goals including the first goal in the championship match; subsequently named best goal for the tournament. She was named player of the match for the 2nd time in the tournament. The team won the cup, making it their eighth title win. [64] [m 1]

[11] [65] Throughout the tournament, she tallied an assist, a goal, [11] and one successful penalty kick in the shootout against Brazil to send the U.S. to the semi-finals vs. France. [66] In the World Cup final, after finishing the game tied 2–2 the U.S. went on to penalty kicks with Japan. [67] Along with two teammates who failed to convert their penalty kicks, Lloyd mishit the ball over the crossbar. [68] The U.S. won the silver medal at the tournament. [69]

CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament and London Olympics, 2012

She was subsequently named player of the match. [m 4]

In the semi-final, the U.S. faced Costa Rica. During the second half, the U.S. scored two goals, the second coming from Lloyd. The U.S. beat Costa Rica 3–0 with Lloyd named player of the match for the second game in a row. [m 5] During the final match against Canada, the U.S. defeated Canada at home 4–0 to move on to the Olympics as the CONCACAF champions. [71] Lloyd finished the tournament with six goals and three assists and tied for the team lead in goals scored. [11] [72]

At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Lloyd scored the go-ahead goal in the 56th minute of the team's opening match against France, to boost the U.S. to a 3–2 lead; the match ended with a final score of 4–2. She scored her second goal of the tournament against Colombia during the group stage. [73]

During the Olympic gold medal match against Japan, played at London's Wembley Stadium, Lloyd scored both American goals in the team's 2–1 victory. [m 6] [74] Her four goals in the tournament tied for the second highest on the U.S. squad. [75] [76] She is the only player (of either gender) in history to score the game-winning goal in two separate Olympic gold medal matches; her first occurred during the Beijing 2008 final against Brazil. [11] [77]

After scoring her 46th international goal in the 13th minute of a friendly against New Zealand in October 2013, Lloyd became the highest-scoring midfielder in the team's history, passing Julie Foudy, who finished her career with 45 goals. [78]

2015 FIFA World Cup

In April 2015, Lloyd was named by head coach Jill Ellis to the 23-player roster for the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada. [79] Lloyd captained the team during four of the team's matches, including the quarterfinal against China, semi-final against Germany and final against Japan [80] [81] and scored six goals during the tournament, finishing the tournament on a four-game goalscoring streak that spanned the knockout stage and that culminated in a hat trick in the game's opening 16 minutes during the final against Japan. The last goal was hailed by Reuters as "one of the most remarkable goals ever witnessed in a Women's World Cup", [82] and featured Lloyd catching Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori off her line and chipping her virtually from the halfway line. [83]

For her efforts in leading the United States to a record third World Cup title, and first since 1999, she won the Golden Ball as the best player of the tournament. [84] While Lloyd's six goals were enough to match Celia Sasic as the tournament's top scorer, Sasic won the Golden Boot for playing fewer minutes and Lloyd was awarded the Silver Boot. [85] Lloyd also became the first woman to score a hat trick in a World Cup final and the first player, male or female, to do so since Geoff Hurst did so for England against West Germany in the 1966 final at Wembley. Furthermore, her third goal earned her a nomination for the Puskás Award, FIFA's annual award for Goal of the Year.

Style of play

Although she was initially criticised for being inconsistent at the beginning of career, and for losing possession too easily, Lloyd later developed into one of the best players in the world, and is highly regarded in particular for her outstanding determination, mental strength, and work-ethic. [111] A tenacious, energetic, and hard-working player, [111] she also is known for her control, technique, and passing accuracy, [8] [112] and is capable of aiding her team both defensively and offensively, due to her stamina, strength, and tackling, as well as her ability to get into good attacking positions, and either score goals or create chances for teammates. [111] [112] [113] These abilities, coupled with her tactical versatility, enable her to be deployed in several midfield positions; although she began her career in the centre, as a defensive midfielder, she is most comfortable when moved to a more advanced role, as an attacking midfielder behind the forwards. [111] [114] Lloyd has also earned a reputation as a "clutch player", due to her tendency to score decisive goals; [111] a powerful striker of the ball, she is capable of scoring from any position on the pitch, and can finish well both with her head and with her feet inside the area. [112] [113]

Personal life

Lloyd lives with her husband, Brian Hollins, in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. [115] She married him on November 4, 2016 in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. [116] She has done philanthropic work for Habitat for Humanity. [117]

Endorsements

Lloyd currently has had a endorsement deal with Nike for several years. [118] In 2011, she was the focus of a promotional feature for the sports company entitled, Pressure Makes Us: Carli Lloyd. [119] Following the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, Lloyd starred in a commercial for Xfinity [120] and signed an endorsement deal with Visa. [121] In August 2015, she co-starred in a Nike commercial called Snow Day also featuring Rob Gronkowski and teammate Sydney Leroux. [122] In April 2016, she was named brand ambassador for Lifeway [123] and appeared in a television commercial for Heinekin the same year. [124] She has a partnership with Whole Foods Market [125] and appeared in a television commercial for United Airlines. [126] In June 2016, she joined Michael Phelps in partnership deals with Krave Jerky. She also has endorsement deals with Beats by Dre, Kind, and NJM Insurance. [127]

Lloyd has been featured in Glamour , [128] Shape , [129] and Sports Illustrated magazines. [130] She was on the covers of Howler Magazine [131] and Sports Illustrated. [132] In 2012, she appeared in an ESPN feature called Title IX is Mine: USWNT. [133] Lloyd has made appearances on numerous television shows including: Good Morning America , The Daily Show with Jon Stewart , Live with Kelly and Michael , The Today Show , Late Night with Seth Meyers , Late Late Show with James Corden . [134]

Lloyd was featured along with her national teammates in the EA Sports' FIFA video game series in FIFA 16 , the first time women players were included in the game. [135] In September 2015, she was ranked by EA Sports as the No. 1 women's player in the game. [136]

Ticker tape parade and White House honor

Following the United States' win at the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup, Lloyd and her teammates became the first women's sports team to be honored with a ticker tape parade in New York City.
