ATLANTA, GEORGIA—Two-time Women’s World Cup winner Carli Lloyd has ended her international soccer career by helping the U.S. women’s national team (USWNT) beat the visiting South Korean soccer team 6-0 on Tuesday night at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota.
The home team USWNT is very focused on the game since South Korea ended their 22-home winning streak last October 21 with a scoreless draw in Kansas City, Kansas.
In their second meeting, USWNT played with more energy as they stop the visitor from scoring.
The USWNT also played more aggressively on offense by scoring six goals in their win.
Lloyd is ending her colorful soccer career as the second-most-capped player in world soccer history with 128 international goals and two Olympic gold medals.
She played well in the bronze medal finish of the USWNT in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics by scoring a goal in her team’s 4-3 win vs. Australia.
Sources said Lloyd’s 312 international caps rank her second all-time in the U.S. and the world behind only Kristine Lilly (354).
Lloyd is one of just four international soccer players to play 300 or more times for her country.
