About the Book

From the celebrated star of the U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, an inspiring, uplifting, and candid memoir of how she got there

Book Synopsis

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER. From the superstar who is going to Tokyo for her fourth Olympics--the oldest player the US women's national team has ever sent.

"If you are a real soccer player--then this is the book for you to read . . . Inspiring and uplifting."--GoalNation

In 2015, the US Women's National Soccer Team won its first FIFA championship in sixteen years, culminating in an epic final game that electrified soccer fans around the world. It featured a gutsy, brilliant performance by team captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd, who made history that day, scoring a hat trick during the first sixteen minutes.?

But there was a time when Carli almost quit the sport. In 2003 she was struggling, her soccer career at a crossroads. Then she found a trusted trainer, James Galanis, who saw in Carli a player with raw talent, skill, and a great dedication to the game. Together they set to work, training day and night, fighting, grinding it out. Despite all the naysayers, the times she was benched, the moments when her self-confidence took a nosedive, she succeeded in becoming one of the best players in the world and bound for the Summer Games in 2021 at thirty-nine.

Review Quotes

"When Nobody Was Watching provides a harrowing account of athletes' sacrifices. Lloyd's single-mindedness has undoubtedly put her in a different plane to most people." -The Guardian "...the point of the to show how dedication and a relentless work ethic can overcome an endless series of obstacles, both personal and professional." -L.A. Times "We are reminded time and time again that our role models, the people we think we know because they play for our favorite team, are not at all who we thought. Otherworldly skills and talents aside, they face the same challenges, heartbreaks and doubts as we do. That's the message that comes through in Lloyd's book..." -USA Today "A remarkable portrait of the relentless drive and sacrifice required to truly be the best." -Booklist "If you are a real soccer player - then this is the book for you to read . . .Open and refreshing . . . From the preface to the epilogue, this book is filled with passion and the solid wisdom of a winner . . . Inspiring and uplifting. Definitely a GREAT READ." -GoalNation "Hard to put down . . . A must read for women's soccer followers and hopefully sets a standard for future books on the women's game." -TribalFootball --
