Carli Lloyd’s incredible goal for USA from halfway line


US captain Carli Lloyd scored an incredible goal in the first half of the Women’s World Cup against Japan, to earn a hat trick and to record the fastest hat trick in FIFA World Cup final history.

Lloyd scored the third goal from the halfway line. The ball floated above the head of Japanese goalkeeper Kaihori but she was unable to flick it around the post.

As a result, Lloyd’s goal will surely rank as one of the best goals you’ll ever see in a World Cup final — men’s or women’s.

    When it was scored, it looked like a piece of brilliance. the day after on replay, it STILL looks brilliant.

    Carli Lloyd is a genius.

    When it was scored, it seemed like poor sportsmanship. Up 3-0, that early and Japan clearly had no answer for the USA team… to then lob up a half field shot like that. Seemed like poor class.

    And then end up having that goal mean a 4-2 lead instead of a 3-2 lead. Truly bizarre, to become a very necessary goal to help Japan from getting any ideas of being able to save the game.

      Poor sportsmanship, for a goal in the first half??? It didn’t “seem” like that to anyone that actually knows soccer, and how good both of these teams are. Sheez, what a dumb statement.

        Anyone that knew soccer knew that the 3-0 goal pretty much clinched the Title for the US. To go for a trick shot seemed a bit bad when Japan were clearly being torn apart.

        Yes, it was only 14 minutes into the game, but the US managed to be up by 3-0 only 14 minutes into the game.

          Anyone that knows sport knows you can’t let up because the other team is struggling a bit. Are you a parent of one of the Japanese players?
