Alex Morgan Continues to Dominate as US Women’s National Team Beats Canada

USA TODAY Sports

After the 2012 Olympics gold medal match between the United States and Canada, Sunday’s friendly between the two was highly anticipated. This game had the potential to offer revenge for Canada or allow the United States Women’s National Team to show they are still better than Canada. The latter happened and Alex “babyhorse” Morgan shined in the 3-0 victory over Canada.

If there was any worry that the US Women’s National Team lost their form since the 2012 Olympics, this friendly erased any such doubt. America looked solid and dominant in most of the match, and never let Canada find many great scoring chances.

Morgan herself continued her dominance in professional and national soccer scenes. With her two goals on Sunday against Canada, Morgan is now tied for 10th on the US Women’s National team career scoring list with 44 goals. According to Anthony Lopopolo, Morgan has now also scored in 69% of the games she has played with USWNT.

Sunday’s friendly showed that the United States’ success will continue well into the future. Before we know it the 2015 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics will be starting and the quest for golds will be the goal. Anything less than winning both will be a disappointment, but do not worry, the future is bright for the Women’s National Team and it is well within their reach to win both the 2015 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics.

Until then, we can be content knowing Morgan and the rest of the team will still succeed on the pitch, and it doesn’t look like  their success on the pitch will end anytime soon.
