Carli Lloyd scores 24 seconds into U.S. victory over Jamaica in Summer Series
The U.S. women are undefeated in 41 straight matches, the third longest streak in team history. The team is undefeated in 55 games on American soil.
Lloyd’s goal was the fastest for the Americans since Alex Morgan scored in 12 seconds against Costa Rica in a 2016 match.
Lloyd also became the oldest woman — at 38 years, 332 days — to score a goal for the national team. It was Lloyd’s 303rd appearance with the team. Head coach Vlatko Andonovski made six lineup changes from the 1-0 victory in the Summer Series opener Thursday against Portugal.
