Carli Lloyd, the two-time Olympic gold medalist, two-time World Cup champion and two-time FIFA World Player of the Year from the U.S. women’s soccer team, is here to show the men how it’s done.

The soccer star recently stopped by the Philadelphia Eagles football team’s practice and kicked a 55-yard field goal. To the surprise of literally no one, she made it look super easy.

Lloyd posted about the kick to Twitter, thanking the team for having her on the field. The moment was caught on video, and you’re not going to want to miss it:

Many football fans were impressed by Lloyd’s skillful execution, as a 55-yard field goal is no easy feat. According to SportsRec, most professional football players’ competitive field goal range caps out around 57 yards.

This kick had Twitter user @Phxflyer wishing he could add Lloyd to his fantasy football league roster:

Meanwhile others, such as Twitter user @joselrdz51, are just waiting for her NFL contract:

Twitter user @sloth_pancake pointed out that all she needs now is a uniform:

Even former football executive and current Hall of Fame evaluator Gil Brandt couldn’t help but notice Lloyd’s talent. He tweeted:

“Honestly, I don’t think it will be long before we see a woman break through this NFL barrier. I’d give her an honest tryout if I were, say, the Bears,” he wrote, poking fun at the Chicago Bears for missing a potentially game-winning field goal:

Clearly, Lloyd is a next-level athlete, and the Eagles confirmed in a tweet that they’d expect nothing less of her.

“What did you expect? She’s a world champion,” the team wrote:

Lloyd is in a league of extraordinary women, indeed! Hopefully she will continue to inspire young women and girls who play soccer for years to come.

What did you think of her impressive field goal? Would you like to see her kicking for your favorite team?
