USWNT legend Lloyd would stay 20 minutes after training to boost her fitness - Former team-mate McCarty

The veteran forward has earned her reputation for going the extra mile, according to her former team-mate with the Houston Dash

Tiffany McCarty has recounted her time playing alongside Carli Lloyd with the Houston Dash, saying that despite her lofty status in the game, the U.S. women's national team star always put in extra work after training.

Lloyd, 39, has already played her final game with the USWNT and will end her playing career whenever Gotham FC's NWSL playoff run comes to an end.

McCarty, who now plays with Breidablik in Iceland, told Goal about being Lloyd's teammate with Houston in 2015 – the same year she scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final for the USWNT.
