Lloyd stopped by a Philadelphia Eagles practice on Tuesday, and the two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champion and two-time Olympic gold medalist put on quite a show.
Lloyd, 37, was seen in videos posted on Twitter hitting field goals from 40 and 55 yards. That 55-yarder, by the way, can be seen going straight through the narrow uprights on the practice field.
Gil Brandt, the former vice president of player personnel for the Dallas Cowboys who was recently inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, took notice.
Lloyd, from nearby Delran, New Jersey, grew up an Eagles fan. She’s not the only US Women’s National Team member with a connection to the NFL team. USWNT teammate Julie Ertz is married to Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.
“I’m really impressed with all of these guys,” Lloyd said.
