Carli Lloyd Announces Retirement

Carli Lloyd, one of the most accomplished athletes in the history of women’s soccer, is hanging up her cleats.

On Monday, the 39-year-old Lloyd announced she’ll retire at the end of the current NSWL season. Her final matches with the USWNT will be a series of friendlies in September and October.

Lloyd is a two-time Women’s World Cup winner and two-time Olympic gold medalist, with 128 career goals in international play.
Not that Lloyd is leaving soccer behind permanently – she promised to “continue to support and cheer this team on and continue to find ways to help grow the game and inspire the next generation.”

Where does Lloyd rank among the all-time great women’s soccer players?
