Toe Poke Daily: Carli Lloyd's field goals and other soccer stars trying different sports
The Toe Poke Daily is here every day to bring you all the weirdest stories, quirkiest viral content and top trolling that the internet has to offer, all in one place.
U.S. soccer fans are familiar with Carli Lloyd's exploits on the pitch, but she has a secret talent that might have some National Football League teams casting a sidelong glance her way.
The striker, fresh off another World Cup winning campaign with the U.S. women's team, took time out on Tuesday to attend a training camp with her beloved Philadelphia Eagles and wasn't shy about showing off her leg strength.
Big-time Eagles fan Lloyd, whose U.S. teammate Julie Ertz is married to Philadelphia tight end Zach, laced a couple of kicks from distance -- even reportedly nailing a kick from 55 yards -- drawing "oohs" and "aahs" from fans and a high-five from coach Doug Pederson.
After last year's kicking woes for the Chicago Bears, we're thinking Matt Nagy should drop Pederson a line and see if he can get Lloyd's number.
Lloyd follows in a long line of soccer stars who have impressed when dipping into other sports...
Mohamed Salah walks (well, runs) on water
As any Liverpool fan will tell you, Mohamed Salah does a neat line in fleet-footed trickery,
However, the Egyptian's latest feat of speed and agility is incredibly impressive -- even by his own high standards.
Shared on Instagram, Salah demonstrated his newfound ability to actually walk (or sprint) upon the water.
Should come in handy if Anfield is hit by heavy rain at any point between now and the end of the season.
Manager, 50, comes off bench to play vs. Celtic
Clyde FC manager Danny Lennon made history on Wednesday night by becoming the club's oldest-ever debutant after coming on for the latter stages of his side's win over Celtic.
With his team leading 3-1 against the Bhoys' academy team, the 50-year-old Lennon decided to bring himself on for the closing minutes of the Glasgow Cup tie to help shore things up.
Lennon retired from playing 11 years ago, and most of his opponents were roughly three decades younger than him.
Indeed, the gray-haired veteran is a full 34 years older than Celtic's Armstrong Okoflex, who only turned 17 back in March.
