Carli Lloyd's style of play in the midfield is pretty physical. Never one to shy away from using her body or contesting a head ball, the Delran native puts every inch of her frame into soccer. So after an MRI revealed a non-displaced, greater tuberosity fracture in her left shoulder, from an injury suffered March 6 during the opening game of the Algarve Cup, it seemed as if the road back to the Carli Lloyd brand of soccer would be difficult. Thursday night at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., in a friendly for the national team, Lloyd got to demonstrate to a home crowd that, after many months of therapy, she was back - as was her aggressive play on the pitch.

IN SOCCER, the objective is to put the ball into an 8-by-24-foot goal. Yet sometimes, a goal has nothing to do with the fixtures on the end lines of the pitch. Sometimes, a goal takes patience. Just ask Carli Lloyd. On May 11, while playing for the Western New York Flash, Lloyd waited 64 minutes before making her National Women's Soccer League debut against FC Kansas City. Yet, getting to that point took a lot longer. Lloyd had been out of commission with a broken bone in her left shoulder since March 6. She suffered the injury in the United States national team's win over Iceland in the Algarve Cup in Portugal.

Jill Loyden knew her hand was broken as soon as it happened. The 27-year-old Vineland native and Villanova graduate was training with the U.S. women's national soccer team in Portugal on March 7 when she felt a crack. Immediately she could feel that it wasn't just a temporary discomfort - a jammed finger or sprained tendon. "Frustrating, to say the least," Loyden said of her injury. "That's an understatement. " The injury was just one more roadblock for the goalkeeper who has overcome personal tragedy, competed for a variety of teams across the country and plays a position that, within U.S. soccer, has become synonymous with the name Hope.
