First thing first: Check out this goal. It’s totally nuts.
With that out of the way, think about the audacity required to see the ball coming at you from about a mile-and-a-half away from the goal and think, “You know what, why not take a shot?”, and then actually having the technique to finish it.
Now, think about an extremely similar situation, only instead of being in a meaningless super early preseason friendly between two teams not even in their country’s top division, it’s on the biggest stage of your entire sport, the World Cup final. Carli Lloyd is a superhero.
