Carli Lloyd drills 55-yard FG at Eagles practice

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

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.

The New Jersey native stopped by the Philadelphia Eagles' practice camp on Tuesday, and hit not only a 40-yard field goal, but also a 55-yard one.

After the teams had finished practicing, Lloyd took to the field and tried her luck kicking some field goals.

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".

In a video she posted to Twitter on Tuesday, Lloyd said it was awesome to visit the Eagles and that she's looking forward to the season."I'm really impressed with all of these guys", Lloyd said.

Carli Lloyd is a big-time Eagles fans and Doug Pederson might not have to look that far if he's ever in need of a reserve kicker.

Lloyd, a two-time Olympic gold medallist and FIFA Player of the Year, scored three goals in this year's World Cup.

Brandt tweeted: "Honestly, I don't think it will be long before we see a woman break through this National Football League barrier".

It's been quite the year for Lloyd, who helped lead the USWNT to back-to-back World Cups this summer.

She isn't the only Eagles fan on the women's national team.

She shared a video of the long field goal on Twitter, where it quickly went viral. The win marked Lloyd's second with the team.
