The United States women's national team had a quick reply following Ellen White's equalizer in Tuesday's Women's World Cup semifinal against England.

Lindsey Horan found Alex Morgan just outside the six-yard box and Morgan gave the U.S. a 2-1 lead in the 31st minute.

Beyond putting the United States ahead, Morgan's tally could have an impact in the race for the World Cup's top individual honor. The Orlando Pride forward now has a tournament-best six goals, tying her with White.

Morgan's three assists would put her ahead of White, though, for the Golden Boot.
