WHEN NOBODY WAS WATCHING

From the celebrated star of the US women’s national soccer team, an inspiring, uplifting, and candid memoir of how she got there.

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 also featured a gutsy, brilliant performance by team captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd, who made history that day, scoring a hat trick—three goals in one game—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 head for the game. What Carli lacked were fitness, mental toughness, and character. Together they set to work, training, fighting, gritting it out. No one worked harder than Carli. And no one believed in her more than James. Despite all the naysayers, the times she was benched, moments when her self-confidence took a nosedive, she succeeded in becoming one of the best in the world. 

This candid reflection on a remarkable turnaround will take readers inside the women's national team and inside the head of an athlete who willed herself to perform at the highest levels of competition.
