Lloyd, who wowed fans with three goals in 16 minutes in the 5-2 win over Japan in last July’s World Cup final, sprained her MCL in April in a game with her club team, the Houston Dash. Her expected recovery time was 3 to 6 weeks, and the striker has said she will be ready to play for her third gold medal.
