World Cup hero Carli Lloyd revealed how soccer ruined her relationship with her family

In a heartbreaking excerpt from an autobiography written by Carli Lloyd, the soccer star opened up about how her sport ruined the relationship she had with her family.

She discusses the pressures her family placed on her that led to long-running tension between her and her parents. That build-up led to an emotional and abrupt decision to move out of her childhood home, and according to the excerpt, the relationship with her family hasn't been the same ever since.

"When my father had open-heart surgery, nobody told me until well afterward. When my sister got married, I was not invited. I love my family and would like nothing more than to reconcile with them. Nobody has done more for me than my parents, who devoted untold amounts of time and money that allowed me to play the game I love. It's no exaggeration to say I never would have gotten anywhere near a World Cup, an Olympics or even the U.S. national team without them. I have never forgotten that, and I never will."

'When Nobody Was Watching: My Hard-Fought Journey to the Top of the Soccer World,' by Carli Lloyd and Wayne Coffey goes on sale Monday.

The rest of the released excerpt can be found here.
