In UWNT's first game since the silly controversy over how they celebrated the goals in their 13-0 loss to Thailand, the question for everyone was how the team would rejoice. when she would inevitably have scored against an outstanding Chilean team. After only 13 minutes of play, this answer was brought to Carli Lloyd who found the starting training.
Lloyd chased a low clearance for the head of a Chilean defender right into the field. It seemed like she was going to the ball at the same time as teammate Julie Ertz, but Lloyd barely beat Ertz to shoot a shot in the back of the net. Given the power and speed of the shooting, no one would have blamed Lloyd for being unleashed during his celebration, but with the overwhelming words of Rob Stone and Canadian experts in his memory she decided to adopt the more conservative approach of a polished golf shot.
As expected, Carli Lloyd scored three times more than the United States while I was writing this blog, and once again organized the celebration of the golf clap away from controversy.
Nevertheless, you need to ask yourself what kind of example Lloyd gives to the next generation by choosing to focus on celebrating another sport instead of focusing on the World Cup match she is currently playing. This is exactly the kind of elitist attitude that we all clearly come to expect from this team. What a pity.
