On Sunday, midfielder Carli Lloyd led the United States to a 5-2 victory over Japan in the Women’s World Cup soccer final. Lloyd scored three goals — she’s the first player to do so in a tournament final. She was also one of three members of the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League to play for the U.S. squad, along with midfielder Morgan Brian (the youngest player in the pitch) and defender Meghan Klingenberg.

With Houston’s own in the spotlight — at a tournament which typically marks the peak of attention towards women’s soccer worldwide — we talk with Brian Ching, Managing Director of the Houston Dash, about the impact of Sunday’s game and the state of women’s soccer here in Houston and across the globe.
