Several stars were on the field in Philadelphia this afternoon as the Eagles and Ravens held a joint practice. However, the star of the show turned out to be Carli Lloyd.
This summer has been memorable for Lloyd, who won another World Cup with Team USA.
Lloyd has put together an incredible career as a member of the United States women’s national team. She has the fourth-most goals and seventh-most assists for the club.
Obviously Lloyd is an exceptional soccer player, but she’s clearly capable of playing on the gridiron as well.
With joint practice taking place this week between the Eagles and Ravens, Lloyd showcased her leg strength. It’s pretty evident that she has the ability to connect field goals from long distances.
Video has surfaced of Lloyd apparently making a 55-yard field goal at practice today.

It’d be fun to watch Lloyd compete against Baltimore’s Justin Tucker in a kicking competition, especially since he’s regarded as one of the best kickers in the NFL.
Lloyd isn’t the only member of the women’s national team that has been at Philadelphia’s facility this month. Julie Ertz, who is married to tight end Zach Ertz, has spent time with the Eagles this offseason as well.
