Carli Lloyd scores hat trick in World Cup final because she's an American hero

Again. She did it again.

Carli Lloyd has game-winning goals in two Olympic gold medal games. She has the game-winning goals in the last two games of this World Cup. And she scored twice in the first five minutes of the World Cup final against Japan. Above, her first goal, off a corner.

And then she did it again two minutes later.

No one is more clutch.

Update: She has a hat trick. She got it by chipping the keeper from halfway. Really.
