U.S. soccer legend Carli Lloyd confirmed on Thursday that the women’s national team lost “to a bunch of 15-year-old boys.”
As a striker, Lloyd helped her team capture two World Cup championships and two Olympic gold medals. She was named FIFA Player of the Year twice before she retired in 2021.
Losing to the teenage boys highlighted the undeniable differences between men and women in a world that insists trans athletes have no advantage over their female competitors.
“Yes it’s true,” Lloyd told an inquisitive user on X. “I know…thousands of people have already brought that up.”
“They were good,” she stated.
What’s up Alexi? Yes it’s true. I know…thousands of people have already brought that up. They were good. We actually lost to a youth Bayern Munich team in my career as well but then we went on to win Olympics and World Cups. So….. https://t.co/nJwfwDJzcM

“Typically when someone mentions this, I’ll post one of the pub photos of you standing with one of the boys… who is a foot taller than you,” another user replied. “I mean, c’mon!”

“Haha,” Lloyd wrote back. “They should beat us.”
“Bigger, stronger, faster!” she exclaimed. “Boys always gave us a run for our money! It was great prep.”

As BizPac Review reported, Lloyd was vilified by the “woke” left when she refused to take a knee during the playing of the national anthem at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.
As seven of her fellow starters, including Megan Rapinoe and team captain Becky Sauerbrunn, snubbed the “Star Spangled Banner,” Lloyd stood tall, earning her the deeply felt love of countless patriotic Americans, many of whom had never watched a women’s soccer match.
Last month, she made headlines again, the Daily Wire reports, when she explained why she chose to stay on her feet.
“In that moment, we were kneeling — it was right before kickoff, so it wasn’t necessarily like a protest per se, but I guess everybody in the English Premier League was just taking a knee before kickoff,” she told CBS Sports. “So we had done it every game, and I knew that was going to be my last world championship game, so I wanted to stand.”
Though she was “sure” the viewers inferred a message from her decision, she said, “I just thought that, we had done enough of the kneeling, and I just wanted to stand at my last world championship game.”
She did call out her controversial former teammate, Rapinoe, in September for taking a knee during 2016 games, calling it a distraction for the team.
“I had conversations with Megan [Rapinoe] — like, this isn’t a personal thing,” Lloyd said, according to the Daily Wire. “What she’s doing, it was distracting our team, it was distracting others to play.”
“I was a captain at that time as well, so I said to her, it’s not to dampen what you’re trying to achieve with it — it just became, everything was focused on Megan kneeling and nobody was talking about the reasoning why, is what I was trying to get at,” she recalled. “And so I had conversations with Megan during that. And every game we rolled up to, it was the camera to her, but no one’s talking about actually what the messaging was about, it was just, she’s kneeling and no one else is kneeling.”
Back on X, Lloyd was praised for her honesty concerning the 15-year-old athletes.
“Great response,” said Illinois NCAA DI Wrestling Champion Adam Tirapelle. “Men and women are different, not better or worse, and that’s a good thing.”
“Women’s sports are just as good as men’s sports, just different,” Tirapelle continued. “Much respect for not trying to spin it. The more people that understand this, the better both gender’s sports will be.”
