Quote of the day: Jill Ellis on the handball call from heaven

“Her hand touched the ball. We’re just pleased it went our way.”

– U.S. coach Jill Ellis, on the handball call against Mexico that set up Carli Lloyd’s game-winning goal in the 80th minute Saturday (Feb. 13). The handball occurs at the 0:10 mark of the video. If you watch 20 or 30 times, you might be able to see it. A cross from Lindsey Horan bounces off Alex Morgan’s chest in the penalty area and hits Karla Nieto of Mexico on the arm before she can react.
