The superb Christiane Endler shows women don't need smaller goals | Hope Solo by Carli Lloyd - 2019-06-17

Carli Lloyd, text's publication from 2019-06-17 17:58:16 : : Goalkeeping is one of the last aspects of the game to develop in women’s soccer. That’s down to lack of resources, not lack of talent
A nice little write up from my dear friend Hope Solo.

“It was a great team performance by the US and Carli played very well showing that she can play both as a forward and in midfield. Carli is a very honest person who holds herself to the highest standards. She is fitter and stronger than she was four years ago. She is coming to this tournament feeling the best she has ever felt. She has a great deal of endurance to carry her through seven games. She knows how to recover. She is smart. I’d even say she is a better player now than she was in 2015.

So she shouldn’t have to always prove herself. She is a two-time Fifa World Player of the Year and has shown time and time again that when the pressure is on in the biggest games she will find a way to carry the team. None of this is surprising to me, though. For example, her left-footed volley against Chile was not happenstance. She works on these things. She has a far higher work ethic than anyone I have played with. When we were teammates, I’d take a day off from training, the team would take a day off, but Carli would not.

That sort of attitude can’t be coached. Carli has a deep, innate desire to be the best player that she can possibly be. Talent doesn’t always take you to the next level. Carli always had the talent but she had a gentle look in the mirror and realized that talent wouldn’t be enough. Credit has to be given to her personal coach, James Galanis. He had a huge influence on her life and her soccer career.

Tournaments like this are Carli’s bread and butter. If my back is ever against the wall I would always want Carli to be the player beside me. She will always find a way to get out of a difficult situation. I’ve seen her do that again and again. Christiane and Carli may be at very different stages of their careers but they have a few things in common beyond Sunday’s game. They both still have so much more to offer that we have not even seen yet. I’m hoping they both light up some more of this World Cup.”
