Two-times Women's World Cup winner Carli Lloyd, one of the greatest women's soccer players to ever grace the game, has announced her retirement, U.S. Soccer said on Monday.

The 39-year-old Lloyd, who was twice named the FIFA Women's Player of the Year, became the second-most capped player in world soccer history (312) during a career that also includes two Olympic gold medals.

U.S. Soccer will soon announce four friendly matches for the women's national team – two in September and two in October - which will serve as Lloyd's final games in a U.S. shirt.

Lloyd will also play the remainder of the National Women's Soccer League 2021 season with NJ/NY Gotham FC before calling time on her professional club career, which has spanned 12 years and six teams.

Carli Lloyd net worth

The discrepancies between female and male football players earnings has been well documented and recent rich listings between those in the women's game compared to the Forbes sporting rich list showcase just how men's levels of income dwarf those in the women's game.

With Lionel Messi earning 71 million euro in 2020 with FC Barcelona, Lloyd (who was the highest earning club player in the world) earned 450,000 with USWL side NJ/NYC Gotham. Reports suggest that Lloyd's net worth is approximately 2 million US dollars with her club salary augmented with a number of lucrative sponsorship deals. The two-time FIFA World Cup winner works with a portfolio of brands such as Visa, Heineken, Beats by Dre and Nike.
