Carli Lloyd is very popular right now, after her lightning-quick hat trick led the U.S. women's national team to a 5–2 victory over Japan in the World Cup Final on Sunday.

In addition to her 372 post-match text messages, she also received a tweet from the President himself, inviting her and her teammates to the White House to celebrate their historic win.

While Lloyd was definitely busy celebrating her achievement with her teammates, she still found some time to respond to the commander-in-chief and accept the invite.
