Carli Lloyd, who has retired from the national team, bid farewell to a full house at Allianz Field in St. Paul, Minnesota, with a 6-0 win over South Korea.

The 39-year-old legend, accompanied by a standing ovation from the crowd, left the field in tears when he was substituted in the 65th minute. Lloyd got down on the track, took off a stopper and then took off his shirt, revealing another gown with her husband’s name on the back.

Considered one of the all-time best players, Lloyd has played in 316 games for the US national team since 2005, second in the standings to the national team after Kristen Lilly (354), who retired in 2010, with 61 assists plus 134 goals. He has won two world championships and two Olympics during his national career.

He sealed the final of the 2008 Beijing Olympics with his goal and, four years later, scored twice in London in the final against Japan. However, his most memorable game was undoubtedly in the 2015 World Cup Final: he scored a hat-trick in 16 minutes, sending his third goal from midfield into the Japanese net.

Lloyd played at club level for 12 years as a professional in the now-defunct Women’s Professional Football League and its successor, the Women’s National Football League. He ended his career with NJ/NY Gotham FC, which had two more regular season games remaining.
