Reflections from a woman who scored three goals in the first 16 minutes of the World Cup final against Japan ‘‘Speechless. Honestly, I'm so proud of this team. This doesn’t feel real. It hasn’t sunk in. So unbelievably proud of every single person on this team. We just made history.’’ Carli Lloyd Her 54 yard goal giving her a hat trick, the first in a women’s World Cup finals history has to rank as a classic. Thank God for Title IX.
