The United States Women’s National Soccer Team is golden.
South Jersey native and Rutgers graduate Carli Lloyd scored both goals in the U.S.’s 2-1 win over Japan in the gold medal match on Thursday afternoon.
Carli is from just across the river in Delran, New Jersey, a place she still calls home. You can actually watch Carli give you a tour of it below courtesy of the USSoccer.com.
“I’ll always be a Jersey girl,” Carli says after giving a glimpse into her life.
She’ll always be an Olympic hero as well.
