Philadelphia Eagles DOUBLE DOINK!#FlyEaglesFly

The Philadelphia Eagles may have a backup kicker in the wings if Jake Elliott has any trouble this year.

Lloyd is a two-time Women's World Cup champion, a three-time Olympian and two-time Olympic gold medallist. "It's awesome to be here, looking forward to the season and fly Eagles fly!"

Lloyd was at Eagles' practice Tuesday to cheer on her favorite football team (she's from New Jersey) and she made a decision to take a few kicks with Eagles stud kicker Jake Elliott after the workout.

Turns out, Carli's soccer skills translate to the gridiron.

However, the attempt "failed completely", as the Venezuelan government put it. AP says the information came from a senior Trump administration official.

The United States star stopped by Philadelphia Eagles practice on Tuesday and showed off some impressive leg strength.

Now, Bleacher Report called this a 55-yard field goal - and she may very well have made one from that distance - but this one was from 32 yards.

As you can tell from the reaction as soon as the ball left Lloyd's foot, that kick was a no-doubter. Lloyd crushed a 55-yard field directly through the center of the uprights.

Sure, it's not a game situation. She doesn't seem the type to cave to a high pressure National Football League field goal situation.
