US forward Carli Lloyd retiring after decorated career
Carli Lloyd has announced her retirement from soccer.
The 39-year-old forward for the U.S. national team had long hinted she would step away from the game following the Tokyo Olympics after a 16-year international career.
Lloyd scored a pair of goals in the United States’ 4-3 victory over Australia to win the bronze medal in Japan.
Lloyd was the first American to score in four different Olympics, and her 10 total goals in the event set a new record among U.S. players.
