Kicking It With Alex Morgan
In Team USA's semifinal match against Canada, Alex Morgan's goal, scored in overtime play, sealed the deal: the US women will play Japan in the finals. Recognized easily by her trademark pink headband made of prewrap (slightly sticky strips of foam players use under very sticky athletic tape), Alex is becoming a household name.
Known for her fast footwork and quick up-field sprints, Alex is considered a Ferrari on the field (at least the Canadian head coach thinks so). Learn more about one of our fave soccer players and get ready to cheer Team USA in the gold-medal match on Thursday, Aug. 9.
