“Haha. They should beat us. Bigger, stronger, faster!” Lloyd stated. “Boys always gave us a run for our money! It was great prep.”
Lloyd also explained her decision to stand during the bronze-medal match at the Tokyo Olympics, stating that kneeling had become a distraction.
She had conversations with Megan Rapinoe about the distraction caused by kneeling during the 2016 games, feeling that the focus was on the act of kneeling rather than the message behind it.
“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,” Lloyd recalled.
“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.”
“I had conversations with Megan [Rapinoe] — like, this isn’t a personal thing,” Loyd said. “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,” Lloyd added.
