In an interview on the website of the 2016 Olympics, Carli Lloyd has bad  news for  international rivals of the U.S. women’s team:

She’s not going anywhere.

The 33-year-old midfielder says she’d like to stick around for the next two Olympics — next summer’s Games in Rio de Janeiro and the 2020 Games in Tokyo.

That would mean she’d also be available for the next World Cup, in France in 2019.

“I’m feeling pretty good, and another cycle of World Cup and Olympics is definitely in my plans,” says the MVP from this summer’s World Cup in Canada.

“I’m going to keep going until I can’t go any more. I would say there is a 95 per cent chance I will be available for Tokyo.”
