Lloyd spoke about the 2015 World Cup, where she scored six goals, earning her Silver Boot honors. She scored a now-famous hat trick in the first 16 minutes of the final match against Japan, becoming the first soccer player since 1966 to do so in a World Cup Final. She also reflected on the beginnings of her soccer career in Delran, New Jersey, her college career at Rutgers and her national team experiences from the youth squad to the highest level.
