U.S. Women's National Team star Carli Lloyd's soccer skills are well-known on the pitch. Tuesday, she showcased her field goal kicking skills during a Philadelphia Eagles practice.

Lloyd, a native of Delran in southern New Jersey, showed up at the Eagles' joint practice session with the Baltimore Ravens, Philly Voice reported. After the two teams finished, Lloyd decided to try a few field goal attempts.

Lloyd, 37, a diehard Eagles fan who gave the team a shout-out at last month's ticker-tape parade for the women's World Cup champions, easily converted 40-yard field goal attempts and even connected on a 55-yarder, ESPN reported.

Lloyd thanked Eagles kicker Jake Elliott for some pointers while she lined up her kicks, Philly Voice reported. She posted videos from practice on social media and said, "I'm really impressed with all these guys. It's awesome to be here. Really looking forward to the season."
