As far as Carli Lloyd was concerned, she was on just another field, doing what she does best.
USWNT star Carli Lloyd has reportedly been offered the chance to make history by becoming the first woman to play in a National Football League preseason game after kicking a 55-yard field goal at Philadelphia Eagles practice. I just had a conversation with Randy [Brown, a Ravens assistant special teams coach], actually. "So, yeah, it's all about the technique, and we'll see what happens".
"Knowing Carli, I don't think she would just hop on and do it", Galanis said. When I have to nail something-shooting hoops, ax-throwing, kicking a field goal-that is the moment I live for and want. One of those teams, according to Galanis, presented Lloyd with the opportunity to be part of the roster and hit the field in an actual game.
Carli Lloyd, 37, is a two-time Federation Internationale de Football Association women's world player of the year and a two-time World Cup champion with the US women's national team.
"Some of my Sky Blue FC teammates say go for it". Lloyd didn't rule out changing sports, and she even suggested that women breaking the gender barrier in professional football could very well be on the horizon. My husband, he's in my corner; friends and family are in all my corner. "But I felt like I was holding them up out there".
Unfortunately, the games on Thursday coincides with a United States women's national team game against Portugal.

About half of smart speakers from Amazon and Google were shipped to markets outside the US , according to Canalys . Baidu in Q2 grew a sizable 3,700% to reach 4.5 million units, overtaking Google's 4.3 million units shipped.
Lloyd was routinely kicking 40-yard field goals during the Eagles practice as well.
Lloyd had to decline the offer because she plays in a game for the USWNT that night.
"We'll try kicking balls with a couple of steps", Galanis said. "It would not be different breaking this down with the right technique". Run too quickly toward the ball and the kicker can't generate enough height or power; run too slowly and the defense will converge to block the attempt.
The endeavor would still require her using her feet to score points on the field, but on a different one, playing alongside men, not women.
Could a woman like Lloyd kick in the NFL? She is an accomplished soccer player that doesn't need to risk her body more than she has to.
Lloyd is a two-time Women's World Cup champion with the USWNT, two-time FIFA Player of the Year and two-time Olympic gold medalist.
