Alex Morgan, on Maternity Leave, Hypes Up USWNT on Twitter

Alex Morgan is currently seven months pregnant and taking time off from the US Women's National Soccer Team, but of course that's not stopping her from being the most supportive teammate around.

The team recently competed in β€” and won β€” the Concacaf Olympic Qualifying tournament, securing their spot at the 2020 Summer Olympics and locking down a first-place trophy in the process. Alex, who helped lead the US to their 2019 World Cup victory, took to Twitter to hype up the team and live-tweet highlights of their five dominant victories. She even visited the team in person when the tournament brought them to LA, and teammate-slash-BFF Kelley O'Hara was extremely pumped about it.

Check out Alex's favorite moments from the qualifying tournament ahead, including poking fun at Kelley's swing-and-a-miss attempt at a cross and suggesting a nickname change for midfielder Lindsey Horan. Wondering whether Alex herself will be returning for the Olympics? That's her current plan, and she's getting in some training sessions to stay fresh. If anyone can do it, it's Alex Morgan.
