Cleat Sixteen

“Surreal. Four goals in 16 minutes? Literally, I don’t even know how that happens, especially in a World Cup final.” It turns out the Abby Wambach was as surprised as the rest of the world by the sweet sixteen minute burst that resulted in four goals — including three from Carli Lloyd — and a World Cup title for the U.S. Women’s team.

+ Looking for a lesson about perseverance to share with the kids? Try this one. Six of the U.S. World Cup stars were rejected from youth teams.

+ The best photos from the USA’s World Cup victory.

+ And what’s the only thing that could make Lloyd’s amazing goal from midfield even better? This commentator yelling goooooooal several times. (Seriously, next time you accomplish something, listen to this…)
