U.S. Abroad: Lloyd scores at Wembley, Morgan injured

Five years after scoring both U.S. goals in the Olympic gold-medal game at Wembley Stadium, Carli Lloyd returned to the mecca of English soccer and won the English Women's FA Cup with Manchester City in front of a record crowd of 35,271 fans.

Lloyd scored on a header for the third goal in a 4-1 win over Birmingham City.

Lucy Bronze, the former University of North Carolina star, Izzy Christiansen and Jill Scott also scored for Manchester City, which also reached the semifinals of the UEFA Women's Champions League.

Alex Morgan scored in Lyon's 3-0 win over Paris St. Germain in the French league but was injured, putting her status in doubt for the French Women's Cup final and UEFA Women's Champions League final, both against PSG.

After the match, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas told L'Equipe that Morgan won't play in Friday's Women's Cup final and had little chance of playing in the UEFA Women's Champions League final.
