Just Because You Can, Watch Alex Morgan Score U.S. Soccer’s 2016 Goal Of The Year

Watch this 2016 throwback showcase some quality USWNT link-up play and a fine finish.

Alex Morgan undoubtedly has a special relationship with the soccer ball. Her ability to fire shots in the back of the net over the years is clear proof of that fact. However, this goal from last spring shows just the kind of mesmerizing soccer sorcery the forward is capable of.

Morgan gets on the end of a wonderfully-placed ball in from Meghan Klingenberg, casually dinks it over an incoming German defender’s head with her left and buries it with a volley on her right. Though she gets trucked by the keeper, she brushes off the golazo against the second-ranked team in international soccer like it’s no big deal.

Fast, technical, smart, deadly, humble. Alex Morgan has all the qualities of a world-class striker.
