Goal from Midfield Completes the Hat Trick (Carli Lloyd)

Carli Lloyd buried this monster fourth goal in the 16th minute of the World Cup championship match.  The ball was passed to her as she moved through midfield, and she noticed then that Japan's goalie was out of position.  Aiming to take advantage of the goalie's mistake, she wound up and shot from MIDFIELD.  The ball soared through the air over the goalie’s outstretched hands, hit the inside of the post and found its way to the back of the net. The goal was her third of the day, completing an utterly astounding World Cup finals hat trick.  Her team went on to win the match 5-2, becoming the first women's team to win the Cup three times.
