Women’s soccer legend slaps Team USA with a dose of hard truth

via CBS

USWNT legend Carli Lloyd criticized the team’s performance and regression on social media after they lost to Mexico in the Concacaf W Championship group stage.

Lloyd said no one fears the USWNT like they used to due to complacency creeping in since the 2020 Olympics.

Teams now believe the US is beatable.

Lloyd wrote, “Yes the whole world has caught up… but I actually hate when people say that because the #USWNT started to regress at 2020 Olympics and have gone backwards.”

“… now they have to rebuild and claw and climb their way back up #NoOneFearsTheUswntanymore,” her post continued.

Lloyd wrote to her supporters, “American supremacy is a myth! We’re the same as everyone else.”

“Yes! Teams used to lose to game before they played us because of fear and intimidation… as the complacency and lack of hunger crept in during 2020 it has given teams the confidence to know the US is beatable so that edge is lost,” claimed the soccer veteran.

Lloyd has been voicing this since the USWNT’s earliest World Cup exit in history in 2021, and said on a podcast that the culture changed negatively in her final playing years.

Lloyd previously said, “Even within our squad, the culture has changed. It was really tough and challenging to play these last several years. To be quite honest, I hated it. It wasn’t fun going in. It was only for love of the game, really, for me. I wanted to win and wanted to help the team, but the culture within the team was the worst I had ever seen it. So, I’m hoping that the future is bright and some things change.”

The US still has talent but faces a test to regain their dominance at the 2024 Olympics under new head coach Emma Hayes, who will take over after Vlatko Andonovski resigns following the 2023 World Cup.

Lloyd and others want to see recognition that the US is no longer the intimidating force it once was.
