One of soccer’s most iconic players sits down with Kelley O’Hara to talk about her roller-coaster journey to the top of her sport. Carli Lloyd speaks candidly about the highs and the lows that have defined her career, from getting cut from a youth national team to her legendary hat-trick in the 2015 World Cup final. The USWNT star discusses why she stood by Hope Solo following her controversial benching at the 2007 World Cup, what it meant to score the gold medal-winning goal at the 2008 Olympics and again in 2012, how she handled missing a PK in the 2011 World Cup, her dominant run through the 2015 tournament, and what people misunderstood about her comments during the 2019 World Cup. Carli also discusses how quarantine inspired her to reconnect with her family after 12 years apart and the hard-won lessons she’s learned as both an athlete and a person.
