Lloyd cleared to join women's soccer league Flash
ELMA, N.Y. -- U.S. women's national soccer team midfielder Carli Lloyd has been cleared to play for the Western New York Flash after missing the past two months recovering from a broken left shoulder.
The Flash announced Lloyd is scheduled to join the National Women's Soccer League team for practice on Friday. She's been out since hurting her shoulder in Team USA's 3-0 win over Iceland in the Algarve Cup on March 6.
Lloyd was assigned to the Flash in January, shortly after the league was established.
The Flash host FC Kansas City on Saturday.
