United States Women’s National Team and Sky Blue FC star Carli Lloyd showed her skills translate to more than soccer on Tuesday when she visited the Philadelphia Eagles training center in South Philly and kicked a 55-yard field goal.
The Delran, N.J. native who is a big Eagles fan, made the long field goal attempt look easy. Sam Koch of the Baltimore Ravens was the holder. The Ravens were holding a joint practice with the Eagles at the NovaCare Complex in South Philly, where Lloyd had a chance to hang out with Eagles kicker Jake Elliott and Ravens’ kicker Justin Tuck.
Thank you to the @Eagles for having me out! Thanks to @JustinTuck @jake_elliott22 @MayorRandyBrown for the good time and tips! #55yd pic.twitter.com/owZ16f46Th— Carli Lloyd (@CarliLloyd) August 20, 2019
Have the @Eagles signed a new kicker? Not exactly, but world champion soccer player @CarliLloyd stopped by the Birds' practice and showed off her leg with some impressive field goals.

It’s of course no surprise that Lloyd would be able to hit a long field goal. She did score a goal in the 2015 World Cup final against Japan from midfield, after all.
