During the United States’ 5–2 win over Japan in the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Final, Lloyd became the first player ever to score three goals in a FIFA Women’s World Cup final and the second soccer player ever to score a hat-trick in any senior FIFA World Cup Final, after Geoff Hurst. Lloyd scored three goals in the first 16 minutes of the final, with the first two occurring in the first five minutes of the game and within three minutes of each other. She received the Golden Ball Trophy as the best player of the tournament and earned the Silver Boot for her six goals and one assist during the tournament.
She previously played for the Chicago Red Stars, Sky Blue FC, and Atlanta Beat in Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS). In 2013, she was allocated to the Western New York Flash for the inaugural season of the NWSL and helped her team win the regular season championship. After two seasons with the Flash, she was traded to Houston Dash prior to the 2015 season and then to Sky Blue before the 2018 season. Her memoir, When Nobody Was Watching, was published in September 2016.
Born to Stephen and Pamela Lloyd, Carli was raised in Delran Township, a small community located in South Jersey about 20 minutes northeast of Philadelphia. Lloyd began playing soccer at age five. 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.” Lloyd has a brother named Stephen, and a sister, Ashley. Lloyd attended the opening U.S. match of the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup, which inspired her to play for the national team.
Lloyd attended Delran High School from 1997 to 2000 where she played soccer under the tutelage of the late Rudy “The Red Baron” Klobach. As a high school athlete, she was known for her exceptional ball control and skill at distributing the ball from the midfield. During her senior year, she scored 26 goals and served eight assists while captaining her team to an 18–3 record. The Philadelphia Inquirer twice-named her Girls’ High School Player of the Year in 1999 and 2000. She was named to the Star-Ledger All-State First Team twice and received 1999 and 2000 Parade All-American honors.
