What more can you say about American midfielder Carli Lloyd? Her first-half hat trick — including this stunner from midfield — led the USA to its first World Cup triumph since 1999. [Source: Streamable]

Freddy Adu sighting! The well-traveled American scored a fine free kick for KuFu 98 — the reserve side of his Finnish parent club, KuPS — in the Finnish fourth division over weekend. That’s his 11th club, by the way. [Source: Gfycat]

UPDATE: Since this caption was first written, Freddy Adu has left KuPS in search of other opportunities. Club number 12 beckons.

It wasn’t the penalty kick that sealed Chile’s Copa América crown, but it was the one that left us speechless. Matías Fernández pulled off a perfect PK to start the shootout, hitting the top corner and paving the way for the hosts’ historic win. [Source: Streamable]
