USWNT star Carli Lloyd makes several splendid field goals at Eagles practice

Lloyd kicked a 40-yard field goal with plenty of room to spare and followed it up with a 55-yard field goal that would make many kickers in the league jealous. Only 12 kickers have made a field goal longer than 50 yards this preseason, and only three have hit one that was 55 yards or longer.

The USWNT midfielder stopped by Philadelphia Eagles practice on Tuesday and took her turn trying to knock down field goals for the 2018 Super Bowl Champions.

She's not the only US Women's National Team member with a connection to the NFL team.

In the video, Lloyd said she was "really impressed with all these guys".

She's also a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan and, as it turns out, a pretty awesome kicker. "Really looking forward to the season".

Until now, we have received a number of rumors about the features and specifications of the upcoming Apple Watch Series 5 . It previously sold a $1,250 ceramic version branded as the high-end Apple Watch Edition, but has since discontinued it .

Lloyd's kicking prowess went viral across social media and impressed Pro Football Hall of Famer Gil Brandt - who was the former vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys.

Carli Lloyd is a two-time FIFA Player of the Year, a two-time World Cup champion, and a two-time Olympic Gold medalist.

She sits joint-eighth in all-time Women's World Cup goals with 10 over the course of her sterling career. "I'd give (Lloyd) an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears".

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