“It felt good knocking the rust off. … I have to keep it in mind that it’s been 11 weeks since I played a game, so I think for the most part it felt pretty good.”
– Carli Lloyd on her return Saturday (July 9) from a knee sprain in April. She played the second half of a 1-0 victory over South Africa at Soldier Field in Chicago. Lloyd was quoted by Graham Hays of ESPNW.
