Delran, New Jersey native Carli Lloyd had a message for all of the New Yorkers during Wednesday's United States National Women's Soccer Team parade. 

“I’m a Jersey girl through and through, but New York is just as close even those I’m an Eagles fan down in Philly," Lloyd said. "Fly Eagles Fly!”

The 36-year-old midfielder has played for the U.S. National Team since 2005. She is a two-time Olympic gold medalist (2008 and 2012) and two-time FIFA Women's World Cup champion (2015 and 2019). 

The other Eagles connection to the USWNT is obviously Zach Ertz's wife, Julie. Julie joined Good Morning Football this week to discuss her World Cup victory and relationship with Zach.
