When the USA opens the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup against North Korea on Sept. 11 in Chengdu (ESPN2 at 5 a.m. ET), it could have as many as five players in the starting lineup who have never played in a Women’s World Cup before. One of them could be midfielder Carli Lloyd, who has developed into an impact player this year, scoring seven goals, good for third best on the team. During some down time in China (there is a lot of it), Carli sat down with ussoccer.com’s Center Circle and answered 11 questions, ranging from her canon shot, to her thoughts on her World Cup debut match, to the quality of pearls in China.
