USWNT star Carli Lloyd drills 55-yard field goal at Eagles practice

22 Августа 2019

At the time the Texans were being featured on the HBO series "Hard Knocks", with Lloyd making a cameo for a kicking competition with now-retired defensive lineman and a man not known for his kicking abilities, Vince Wilfork.

Carli Lloyd might have another career option: kicking in the NFL.

According to ESPN, Carli, who just happens to be an Eagles fan, kicked a 40-yard field goal easily, followed by a 55-yard field goal that I can not stop watching.

Lloyd, 37, gave her beloved Birds a shoutout at the ticker-tape parade for the World Cup winners last month in NY, letting loose a "Fly Eagles Fly".

As video of her field goal spread across Twitter, commentators and fans alike called for Lloyd to get a real shot in the NFL.

Lloyd, a member of the USA team that captured the 2019 World Cup in July, got a chance to show off her strong leg by nailing 40- and 55-yard field goals after the practice. "It's awesome to be here, looking forward to the season and fly Eagles fly!"

While Lloyd, who is a life-long Eagles fan, may have the skills to be the first woman to play in the National Football League, she has seen plenty of success playing soccer. "I'd give her an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears", Brandt said.

The United States women's national soccer team has been a touring all over since their World Cup win earlier this summer.

While with the team, Lloyd took a few field goal attempts, nailing both a 40-yard and 55-yard try with relative ease.
