Carli Lloyd has put herself and team USA into the record books.
Amazing performance from ALL US women’s team members and coaching
staff to pull this one off. With all the pressure of knowing we as good as we are, and playing in our back
yard of Canada for most of the US to attend if they wished, this couldn’t have gone any sweeter.
Wambach’s last match played for the US and probably Christie Rampone’s last match however both
women seem to be able to play into their sixties if they wish. What a send off for the veterans of the
squad and a huge step up for any women wanting to join this amazing bunch of athletes. This defense
is one of the strongest in any World stage competition, men or women, only one goal given up by this
whole team going into the final. Not just how good Hope Solo (goal keeper) played,but the front four of
the defense and the subs that came in. Look for underlined names with mp3 interview links during
World Cup 2015 from US players below, done by Men in Blazers. Awesome showing by Becky
Lori Chalupny, and the midfield who dropped back so much to help. This team got better every match,
and rolled with the punches. Wonderful patterns of play produced by Christen Press, Tobin Heath,
Lauren Holiday, Morgan Brian, Amy Rodriguez and Shannon Boxx. Sydney Leroux saw sometime
but it was Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe who put the pressure on the opposing defenses and
opened up lanes for Carli Lloyd to work her magic. Rapinoe and Morgan really took alot of the
concentration of the opponents. Lloyd was on a mission! And no one could stop this dynamo…
Setting world cup records with the only hat trick in the final match, the time it took to achieve it,
16 minutes total from one to third goal, received both the Silver Boot and Golden Ball award for
this world cup tournament. Having 6 goals and assisting on three others, Lloyd was the force to put
the US into the history books. Three time world cup winners, the US has the toughest team in the World!!!
If you are a U8, U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, or U15 player, go out and see these women play, they
have a great league at http://www.nwslsoccer.com . Once again congratulations Coach Jill Ellis,
Hope Solo gets the Golden Glove Award,
and OMC Oh My Carli, TEAM USA World Cup Champs!
Shout out to Unbelievable Super Subs Teammates of the World Champ’s Whitney Engen, Ashlyn Harris, and Alyssa Naeher
YOU ALL WON THIS FOR US…..
Oh, BTW, FIFA, NO More Artificial Turf !!!!!
