Alex Morgan: How the US Phenom Made America Fall in Love with Her
Alex Morgan Went From Being Virtually Unknown to One of the Faces of the US National Team
Prior to the 2011 Women's World Cup, Hope Solo had captivated the hearts of the majority of the fans of the United States. She's edgy, attractive and independent, not to mention, she's a world class goalkeeper.
As casual spectators started to tune into the 2011 Women's World Cup, they started to take notice to No. 13. Who is that girl? Why do I not know who she is.
No. 13 is Alex Morgan, a forward who just turned 22 earlier this July. Fans who follow the Women's National team closely, Morgan's emergence in this Women's World Cup comes as no surprise.
She's been tearing up international play for the US, even berthing them to this year's Women's World Cup.
Morgan's young, strikingly flawless appearance captivated America. Here Morgan was in her first ever Women's World Cup and she had already become one of the most recognizable figures on the Women's National Team, after being virtually unknown.
Luckily for those left drooling over the 22-year-old phenom, she will likely become the next legendary figure in Women's Soccer. There is no telling how far her potential will carry her. She has incredible speed and a great ability to finish.
When Solo and Abby Wambach are no longer with the team, it's going to be up to Morgan to carry on the legacy. She's as talented at soccer as she is good looking, which makes her the total package.
She will undoubtedly bestow marketing magic for whatever companies elect to pick her up.
While Morgan made the entire country fall in love with her, she's taken by Seattle Sounder's Servando Carrasco. Of all the celebrity relationships the general public is hoping to see end, this one could be at the forefront.
As it stands, Morgan remains tied down. It comes as no surprise that the best looking and one of the most talented players on the US National team (who has a Cal education to boot) doesn't have any problems finding suitors.
While Solo is still one of the biggest heartthrobs of the US National team, she clearly passed the torch to Morgan during the 2011 Women's World Cup.
