One of the iconic moments of the 2015 World Cup final occurred when Abby Wambach came on in the 79th minute and Carli Lloyd, in a gesture of pure class,  gave the captain’s armband to her teammate.

In this USA Today story by Laken Litman, Lloyd explains why she did it.

“I wanted to make sure she put the armband on because she deserves it,” Lloyd says. “She has been legendary to this team. She’s been unbelievable. I’m so thankful I can call her my friend, my teammate. …

“She’s a tremendous champion. She’s a competitor. She’s inspiring. I’ve loved playing with her every second.”
