Lloyd returns to U.S. team

Delran's Carli Lloyd is returning to action with the U.S. women's national soccer team after recovering from a shoulder injury.

CARLI LLOYD will once again take the pitch for the U.S. women's national soccer team after sitting out 2 months due to injury.

The 31-year-old Delran, N.J., native made the 21-women roster for the June 2 matchup with Canada in Toronto. It will be her first match with the national team since she suffered a broken bone in her left shoulder in the United States' 3-0 win over Iceland on March 12.

Lloyd saw her first action since the injury with her professional team, the Western New York Flash, on May 11, in which she played 26 minutes off the bench in a 2-1 victory over Kansas City.

Lloyd is known for her heroics in the last two Olympics. In both 2008 and 2012, she scored the winning goals in the gold-medal games, against Brazil and Japan, respectively.
