Carli Lloyd is unreal. Carli Lloyd is an American hero. In a game that was billed to be one of the best match-ups in recent history, Carli Lloyd tore apart the Japanese defense for 3 goals in 16 minutes. Yes, she scored 3 goals in a World Cup Final in the same amount of time it takes for you to finish your first cup of coffee in the morning. If you happened to turn on the game late or blinked, you can catch the goals here, and here. What happens in the second half? Can she score 3 more?
Carli Lloyd’s hat trick is the earliest ever in a WWC match (16′) & the 3rd-fastest at the WWC (13-minute span). #USA
