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.

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.
