Watch Carli Lloyd score as Manchester City Women cruise in FA Cup final
Carli Lloyd certainly enjoys playing at Wembley Stadium. The U.S. women’s national team star scored a goal in Manchester City Women’s FA Cup triumph against Birmingham City Ladies in a 4-1 win to secure the title. On loan from the Houston Dash, Lloyd rose to meet a header after a gorgeous cross from Megan Campbell to put the Citizens comfortably up by three goals before halftime.

Lloyd’s goal came after teammate Lucy Bronze scored the opener, followed by Izzy Christiansen knocking in the second. Charlie Wellings scored for Birmingham after the break to offer a faint heartbeat, but City’s Jill Scott pulled the plug in the 80th minute.
Scoring at Wembley has become a habit for Lloyd, who scored both of the USWNT’s goals in a 2-1 win in the 2012 Olympic final victory against Japan at the historic venue. With the FA Cup title, Manchester City secured the treble in England after winning the Women’s Super League and the Continental Tyres Cup.
