Women’s World Cup Carli Lloyd and U.S. teammates play the waiting game

Lloyd celebrated her goal with a golf clap.

That's one way to clap back at the haters, Carli.

Horan has played tour guide for her teammates, including Courage midfielder Samantha Mewis.

Lloyd was among five USA players who were on the field for every minute of the 2015 World Cup, joined by Sauerbrunn, goalkeeper Hope Solo and defenders Julie Johnston and Meghan Klingenberg. "It wasn't something where I needed the whole world to see".

"I guess we could have just passed it around the back for a million times, but that's boring. But it was fun", Lloyd said, via ESPN.

"I can't take credit for it".

After the game, Thai goalie Chor Charoenying thanked Lloyd for her compassion at the end. Ali Krieger was on the right and 20-year-old Tierna Davidson on the left in her World Cup debut.

Former U.S. goalkeeping star Hope Solo was full of praise for the Americans' performance, but said she found it "tough" to watch some of their celebrations given the scoreline. "We're at the biggest stage of our lives. I've come close. That's obviously a dream of mine to be able raise that trophy for my country". USA coach Jill Ellis speculated it was from her husband - professional golfer Brian Hollins. So after the game I felt for her and wanted to go up to her. "What I know is that Carli will always put the team first", Ellis said.

Lakers reportedly intend to pursue Raptors star Leonard
Leonard is an unrestricted free agent and it seems as if he intends to re-sign with the Raptors on a short-term contract. Kawhi Leonard did what he was supposed to do during his first - and possibly last - season with the Toronto Raptors .

The bench joined in on the celebration and signaled a combination of thumbs up and handshakes. The demotion didn't last long, however, because Boxx was injured in the opener. Ellis on Saturday was hit with another handful of questions about running up the score and her players' exuberant celebrations, and once again dismissed them all.

But she turns 37 next month and is the oldest player on the team.

In the wake of Tuesday's victory, the American players faced criticism for celebrating the late goals in a blowout.

In a move that shocked nobody, United States head coach Jill Ellis confirmed that her squad will not be easing off the gas to avoid France in the knockout stages of the 2019 Women's World Cup.

"That night was about celebrating people". The United States next plays Chile on Sunday in Paris. "But we are human, and there is a human element to it".

"I just want to do anything I can to help the team, and that hasn't really changed from when I first got to the team in 2005", she said.

"All you can do is give it your best each and every day".
