England’s wingers, Ellen White, Fran Kirby, the Lionesses’ speed, a resilient defence … the way the United States side talk about their opponents for Tuesday’s semi‑final in Lyon, you could be forgiven for thinking Phil Neville’s side are the world champions rather than the team from across the Atlantic.
Yet the Americans are right to highlight some concerns, given the way England strolled past Norway last Thursday and could even afford the luxury of Nikita Parris missing a penalty with the score at 3-0. By contrast, USA expended a fair deal more energy – not just because of the weather – in getting past France a day later.
For Alyssa Naeher, the US goalkeeper, concerns are understandably centred on White, the tournament’s joint-top scorer. Their game three months ago against England in the SheBelieves Cup will provide a valuable blueprint. The teams drew 2-2 but England won the competition. Naeher said: “Ellen White is in great form and scoring goals and we’ll move on to shift our focus and figure out a gameplan to stop that. We played them back in March so we’ll go back and look at that and we’ve watched a few of their games throughout this tournament. It’s going to be another hard-fought game.”
Alex Morgan, one of those tied with White in the scorers’ chart on five goals, believes the danger does not stop with England’s in-form striker. “Ellen White is obviously coming into this next game really confident,” she said. “She has gained that starting spot and that’s huge. We have to look at her because of the goals she is scoring. We also know we have to look at the wingers and the speed that they have, and the 10 spot, looking at Kirby. They have a lot of talent on the team.”
Morgan will be trying to break down the meanest defence left in the tournament – “stingy” is how Becky Sauerbrunn describes it – but the she knows England are on the up.
“They obviously dominated against Norway, it was a great game for them so we were watching pretty closely knowing that we could very well face them. Now it’s all about recovering for them. They’ve really evolved their game over the last couple of years and we’ve been fortunate enough to play them every single year , so I think we’ll see something that we’ve seen quite a bit of, but now it’s who is going to show up to play.” Morgan, though, despite a tough schedule, “feels good”. “Playing this many 90-minute matches and playing in the last group, meaning we had the least amount of rest, is not ideal. But we feel great and we will be ready,” she said.
The USA defender Abby Dahlkemper agrees that Neville’s side have a number of strong features to their play. “England are a really good side,” she said. “They play well and it will be a good match-up. They’re athletic and tactically flexible. Their wingers are very pacy and they like to attack from their full-backs as well. We have to be aware of that and the threat. We have to be good in transition on Tuesday.”
The midfielder Sam Mewis didn’t mention Lucy Bronze, scorer of that brilliant strike against Norway, by name but she knows which side the Lionesses prefer to attack down.
She said: “England are dangerous down that right flank but they have a lot of threats. We are going to take everything into consideration and of course we will continue to try to play our game.”
On facing another top three team within five days Dahlkemper is unfazed: “I think pressure makes us step up even more. We’re prideful. We have this winning mentality – whatever it takes. We definitely showed that and put in a gritty performance because that was what it was going to take to win.”
The trouble they have is trying to predict Phil Neville’s side. With 22 of the 23 in the squad having playedappeare, and the team employing both 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 formations, deciding on how best to cope with their threats is a tough task. But with England posing so many problems, what can the US offer in return? Many things, of course, but like Neville’s team, the Americans have like to ensure their gameplan is fluid and unpredictable. The move to a back five after an hour against France in their 2-1 win surprised many and they have used every outfield player at some stage so far.
“We want to be a hard team to scout,” explained Sauerbrunn. “We have a variety of formations and ways of playing. We want to make it hard for teams to prep for us.” Mewis added: “We can do better. France posed us a lot of challenges and had a lot of the ball. I give us credit for grinding it out and getting the win but we know we have more to offer and want to show that in the next game.”

Ellen White had to fight back tears in her post-game interview after England were knocked out of the World Cup in Lyon.
The USA edged a tight game against England with a 2-1 victory, with White on the scoresheet for the Lionesses.
White is currently the tournament’s leading goalscorer with six strikes, alongside American Alex Morgan, but broke down in tears when the final whistle blew.
The striker emerged for his post-match interview and momentarily paused to try and compose herself.

‘I’m going to cry,’ she said. ‘I’m devastated not to get to the final. All I feel is pride for my team-mates.
‘USA had an amazing match and we just couldn’t match them. I’m proud to be English and I wish them all the best in the final.
‘We gave everything. In the first half we were sloppy.

‘We got ourselves back into the game with the goal and it’s bitterly disappointing.
‘We’ve got an unbelievable squad and we had so much belief that we’d get to that final but we just couldn’t do that on the day.’
England crash out of the World Cup at the same stage they did four years ago, but manager Phil Neville praised his players’ efforts after going behind early.

He said: ‘My players gave me everything. We said we wanted to leave our hearts and souls on the pitch and we did. We gave everything.
‘They showed great experience at the end to keep the ball in the corner.
‘We just ran out of steam. I asked them to play football the way we wanted. We’ve done our very best. I’ve told them no tears tonight.’

Makeup is something that has become so common in our society these days that it is almost weird to talk about women not wearing any makeup. Seriously, if you are someone who follows this sort of thing, you probably realize that it is actually big news when a celebrity leaves her home without wearing any makeup. Sometimes, celebrities who are falling off the mainstream end up doing something like going out without makeup in order to draw attention from the paparazzi and get some more media time for the mere fact they are not wearing makeup. Yeah, since we are a sports crowd, it doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense, does it?
Either way, female athletes are also a group who loves their makeup. Be it at award ceremonies or even during competitions depending on the sport a particular lady plays, she will be wearing makeup. Since it is almost a social norm, it is just natural for them to do that. However, this commonality to wearing makeup has also given us a few ideas for entertaining articles. The obvious idea here is that since we are getting more and more used to seeing female athletes using makeup, why not talk a little bit about the topic of when they don’t wear makeup? Female athletes are some of the people who most take care of their bodies and outlooks without the need to add anything, so it seems like a given that this is one group of ladies who will undoubtedly look good even without makeup. Here are what these 15 female athletes look like without makeup.

15 Hope Solo
Hope Solo is arguably the most famous athlete in women’s soccer. The American goalkeeper became a fan favorite all around the world because she is amazing at what she does, but also because she is one of the most beautiful women who has ever played soccer. And given the fact that while they are playing, most athletes do not wear makeup, it is no surprise to anyone that Solo would be someone who looks incredible even without makeup.
There is something to say about natural beauty here, and this two-time Olympic champion sure knows how it feels to be naturally beautiful. Too bad she is prone to doing some pretty terrible stuff outside of the pitch from time to time. Although we would like to see Hope playing for team USA again.
14 Alex Morgan
Since we are on the subject of soccer, we might as well go ahead and talk about the woman who took the throne of most beautiful soccer player in the world away from Hope Solo. A lot of this has to do with the fact that Hope Solo doesn’t play international soccer anymore. Still, something tells us that even if Hope were still around, the public would have found its way around her and to Morgan.
Alex Morgan is beautiful, it is simple as that. This became clear from the moment she got international fame with her first appearance in the United States national team. Now, 137 appearances later and with 81 goals scored for the national team, she has solidified herself as not only the most beautiful but also one of the best players around.
13 Ronda Rousey
Usually, when people talk about female athletes not wearing makeup, they are often looking at women who are playing a sport. By that, we mean that they do not wear makeup during their athletic activity. Still, these are women who like wearing makeup and do so whenever they leave their homes. However, an exception to this rule is the newest female Superstar of the WWE, Ronda Rousey.
Ronda is a gold mine for paparazzi because she doesn’t really care about wearing makeup or not. It is actually very common for people to see her walking around without any makeup whenever she goes out shopping or even traveling. And hey, there is nothing wrong with that. Wearing makeup is not mandatory for anyone, and Ronda certainly is someone who doesn’t really need all that makeup anyway.
12 Ellie Jean Coffey
Here’s a fun fact. Most athletes don’t wear makeup when they are competing, right? In most cases, this happens because they don’t want to get sweat on their makeup because apparently, that turns everything into a sloppy mess. This is all understandable, but what can you do when your competition happens in the water? Yeah, this is an interesting one.
Although we are sure someone somewhere has come up with makeup that doesn’t come out in the water, some athletes don’t need it at all. Water is a natural habitat, and you should be all natural whenever you are in the water. Someone who pulls that off perfectly is Australian surfer Ellie Jean Coffey. This 24-year-old might not be among the top 50 in the world rankings, but she certainly is near the top when it comes to beauty.
11 Skylar Diggins
Few sports are as vicious as women’s basketball. Seriously, if you thought the men’s game is physical, you should at least try and watch a little bit of a WNBA game. We won’t say the game is more entertaining than the NBA skills-wise because that is just impossible, but you have to give it to those ladies, they really go 110 percent every night. That being said, makeup is not something that relates very well to a game that is as physical and demanding as women’s basketball.
Luckily for the fans, there are a lot of basketball players who do not need makeup to look beautiful. A perfect example of this is 27-year-old Skylar Diggins. The former Notre Dame standout has become one of the best players in the league. A fun fact is that she won a 3×3 basketball World Championship for the United States in 2012.
10 Lolo Jones
If anything, the one certainty we have right now is that Lolo Jones has the best name on our list. Sure, Lolo is just a nickname since her full name is Lori Susan Jones, but still, Lolo is pretty awesome. Another thing that is awesome about this lady is the fact that she is one of the best sprinters in the world. Most specifically, she is one of the best hurdlers in the world.
Her best result in a major competition happened at the 2012 London Olympics when she finished fourth in the 100 m hurdles. Still, Lolo has some better results in championships like the World Indoor Championships. She is actually a two-time champion of the 60 m hurdles event. Her first win was in Valencia 2008 and her second was in Doha 2010.
9 Zsuzsanna Jakabos
Hey, surfers are not the only people who earn their livings in the water. When it comes to athletes, we also have the perfect example of swimmers. Yes, this should have been our first thought when looking for female athletes who look good without makeup. What better way to find examples of this than looking at an Olympic swimming pool?
Swimmers are always in the water, so it becomes second nature for them to be without makeup. And who knows, maybe all that time without wearing makeup can get us more used to how their real faces look like, which in turn makes them seem more attractive. Still, something tells us that Zsuzsanna Jakabos would be beautiful regardless of what she did or did not do in terms of wearing makeup or staying clean faced.
8 Simona Halep
It is not unusual for us to find the most beautiful athletes who compete in a certain sport in a place very far from the top of the rankings. The fact is just that beauty and skill are not things that walk hand-in-hand most of the time. However, whenever they do, it is certainly a treat for the fans. First, because whenever you go watch one of these players you get to see the best at doing what they do. And second, is the obvious fact that you also get to see beautiful people. Someone who fits the bill here is the current number one female tennis player in the world, Simona Halep.
This Romanian superstar is impressive in many ways. Aside from the fact that she looks good even without makeup in competitions, there is the fact that she is the number one in the world despite never having won a grand slam.
7 Alexa Bliss
Well, it’s finally official. Alexa Bliss is officially the most beautiful woman in the WWE. The self-proclaimed “Goddess” of the promotion has always awed fans with her looks, but she is someone who wears a lot of makeup during the shows. That could wrongly lead people to believe that she would not look as good without all of that cover. It turns out that the truth is the complete opposite. Say what you want to say, but there is a real argument to be made here that Alexa looks better without makeup than she does with it on.
Seriously, it is almost ridiculous how beautiful this woman looks every day. Her fiancé, NXT star Buddy Murphy, sure is a lucky fellow. This started making us wonder what the other WWE Superstars would look like without makeup, and it turns out that there are a few who look good as well. Not as beautiful as Alexa, but still impressive.
6 Maria Sharapova
Maria Sharapova is rarely seen without some form of makeup. Even when she’s competing, she usually has a little lipstick on, or some form of eye-liner on. She has done tons of modeling shoots and she’s one of the most savvy businesswomen in all of sports, so she knows how to keep growing her brand. There have been some pictures of Sharapova that she was perhaps caught at a bad time, but in recent years, Sharapova has begun embracing her natural looks and she occasionally shares a picture of her looking all natural. And you know what? She really doesn’t need to have makeup on at all times. Hopefully, several other female athletes can follow her lead and embrace their natural look.
5 Paige Spiranac
Well, just in case you were wondering if Paige Spiranac’s beauty was enhanced by Instagram filters, or making sure she’s absolutely 100% dolled up before every picture she takes, this proves she doesn’t need any help to look good. Even when she’s coming off a long workout she still looks stunning and shows that she can pull off the all-natural, girl next door look. Spiranac of course, has gotten a lot of attention for her SI Swimsuit photoshoot and for being the most outspoken opponent of the LPGA’s strict dress code which just about takes any fashion freedom that female golfers should have when they’re competing (within reason). Well, at least Spiranac knows how to please her fans!
4 Darya Klishina
Okay, get ready for a mind-blowing fact. This is not a lie, there is no Photoshop here, there is not anything. This is literally what Darya Klishina looks like without makeup. Yeah, it doesn’t seem possible, does it? How could someone be so naturally beautiful? And to be honest, we have no idea how to answer that question. We guess you just have to start believing in a higher power when you see something like this. Be serious with yourself, in order to design a person like this, whatever kind of God is out there, be it a higher entity like a lot of people believe, or natural selection, it or he or she had to be one hell of an artist because Darya Klishina is a masterpiece.
3 Marta Menegatti
We have talked about surfers, and we have spoken of swimmers. But what is the other element that always seems to go hand-in-hand with water? Sure, we are not talking about pools, but we are talking about beaches. That being said, the other element is sand. And the sport with hands down the most beautiful women that is played in the sand is beach volleyball. It would be unfair for us to make a list like this and not add an entry dedicated to a beach volleyball player. Like many other sports, this is one in which the ladies refrain from using makeup a lot of the time. It makes sense since you are always diving into the sand and getting it all over you. Put that together with makeup, and you would probably have a mess.
Going back to the original point, the athlete here is the beautiful Italian player, Marta Menegatti.
2 Katinka Hosszu
There is nothing more attractive than a winner. Victorious people are the kind of folks who just draw others closer with their accomplishments and personalities. Few people have proven that truer in the world of swimming than the Hungarian sensation, Katinka Hosszu. The Iron Lady might just be the greatest swimmer of her generation, and she has the results to go along with that.
How many people have you heard of winning three gold medals in a single edition of the Olympic Games? Yes, we have been spoiled by Michael Phelps and his greatness, but three gold medals are more than most people would dream of winning in a lifetime. To do so in one edition of the games just proves how Katinka is not only beautiful in how she looks without makeup, but also because of her skill.
1 Federica Pellegrini
Since we have already tried to hammer into your head the idea that female swimmers are some of the most beautiful athletes around and certainly a group of female athletes who knows how to look good without makeup, we thought it would make sense to end this list on that same note.
We have given a few examples of beautiful swimmers, but it is hard for other ladies to compete with someone who looks as good in her natural element as Italian speedster Federica Pellegrini. This 29-year-old lady has been a regular at the Olympics since 2004, and somehow, she is still pulling in results and looking good while doing it these days. Just last year, Federica came out victorious in the 2017 200 m freestyle final in the Budapest World Championships.

wish I could tell you that I never have conversations with myself … but it wouldn’t be true. I can’t really help it. Right before we play with the national team, my mind just starts to wander off.
And listen, I love the national anthem. It’s beautiful. When we line up out on the field, I feel so proud to represent America. When it starts, you’re just there in the moment. You close your eyes, put your hand on your heart and sing.
O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light…
But the song is also … long. You know? At least it feels that way when you’re standing there, waiting for the game to start. And, at some point, the lyrics fade into the background, and you begin to talk to yourself.
“O.K., Alex, here we are … I wonder where your family is sitting?”
You open your eyes, scan the crowd. You know you’re not going to find them — it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So you give up after five seconds. “O.K., Alex, back to the national anthem.”
When we line up out on the field, I feel so proud to represent America.
… whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight …
“Oh no,” you say. You’re starting to feel stiff. This is no good: The last thing you want to do before a game is go cold. You begin moving your legs a little. Danger averted.
“Good, Alex. Now, not long until the game starts. Time to get ready! Let’s go!!”
… and the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air …
“Ah, still going. Right, let’s keep singing.”
Those are the types of random thoughts that will sneak into my mind. But sometimes, I can also become really contemplative. Like — I’ll look at the little kids holding the flag, and I’ll think, Hmm, I wonder what their stories are.
I wonder if they know who we are.
I wonder what they’re thinking right now.
Jed Jacobsohn/The Players’ Tribune
And unlike the other stuff, these thoughts are not random at all. In fact, they touch upon issues that are very important to me. Because when I look at the kids holding the flag, and I zoom in on the girls, I feel as if I am looking into the future. I wonder if one of these girls will become one of our next soccer stars, one of those who will inspire the next generation.
The challenges, the obstacles, the doubt. The difficulties that come with being a female athlete.
I really hope so … but I also know how difficult their journeys are going to be. The challenges, the obstacles, the doubt.
The difficulties that come with being a female athlete.
And let me just say right now, none of these issues goes away just because you become a professional soccer player. (More on that later.) But the hardest part is to overcome them the very first time. And that, in turn, sends me back to the past. Because when I look at the girls, I also see something familiar. Something I recognize.
I see … well, I see myself.
She is a seven-year-old girl. She is walking into the home office of her mother. She grabs a yellow sticky pad. She makes a note on it.
The note that will change her entire life.
I still don’t know why I wrote what I did. I had never watched a women’s soccer match on TV. I didn’t know there was a professional league. I didn’t even know that women’s soccer was a thing beyond playing for fun. But one day I went with my older sister to our mom’s office. My sister found the yellow pad, and wrote a note to Mom saying what she wanted to be when she grew up.
She wanted to be a model.
And so I was like, Well, I’m gonna write a note too. And I’m gonna stick it up there so Mom sees it. I took the pad, grabbed a pen, and scribbled down my dream.
“I am going to be a professional athlete for soccer! Love always, Ali Cat.”
My mom still has that note, by the way.

I guess I just pulled it out of thin air. Three years later I was playing tetherball and kickball with the boys in school, near our home in Diamond Bar, California. And I was beating them. When I began playing rec soccer, there wasn’t much of a physical difference between me and the boys. Which was interesting, because it meant that I wasn’t overloaded with all these rules about how you should act or be seen as a girl. When you enter your teens, you get judged on what you wear, how you do your hair, you begin to use a bit of makeup … you know? But when I was 10, I was just who I was: a tomboy having fun. I wore long socks up to my knees. I had no fashion sense. I loved getting dirty out on the field.
When I was 10, I was just who I was: a tomboy having fun. I wore long socks up to my knees. I had no fashion sense. I loved getting dirty out on the field.
Whatever sport I played, I didn’t really care what people thought of me.
Also, it helped that I had the world’s best soccer coach.
A soccer coach who knew nothing about soccer.
A couple of times a week, my dad would pick me up from school and drive me to training. He had no clue about soccer, but he was so present, especially given what he was going through. He owned a construction business that was nearly bankrupt. He’d leave for work at 5 a.m., and yet he still had the energy to take me and six other girls to training, driving all over the city to pick them up. He kind of had to, really, otherwise we didn’t have enough players for a full team.
All the family members helped me in their own ways. Mom worked so hard to support us, my two older sisters were so close to me. And Dad coached me. He’d be like, “Alright Alex, let’s go train. I can get off work early. Come on, let’s go.”
And I’d be like, “Oh, I’m tired.”
And he’d be like, “No. If you want to be the best, we need to train. Put on these ankle weights and run around the block 10 times.”
And I’m like, “O.K., Dad, O.K!”
He was always doing crazy stuff like that.
When I was 14 or 15 years old, I wanted to get a scholarship for college. I needed to play with the best youth teams, at the best tournaments, and that meant going out of the state a lot. My parents would drive me to these weekend tournaments, which often lasted four days. I don’t think they ever used their vacation time on an actual vacation. I don’t think they even liked being at those tournaments. But they went anyway, because they knew I had this dream.
By now I guess my dad had read the yellow sticky note too.
Not everyone cared about my dream, though. When I was 14, I began playing for my first club team. Honestly, every girl who wanted to play college soccer was playing club soccer at this point. But I just … wasn’t. I just played recreational for my city. I didn’t really know that you started younger.
The coach saw that I had talent. But he was like, “You’re just not finessed enough. You’re not good enough. You’re not gonna make it. I’m sorry, you just can’t be on this team.”
Nothing like that had ever hit me before.
I mean, I had heard similar stuff. But when I was in school, I was this confident little fireball. If people said that I couldn’t become a soccer player, I’d be like, “Well, screw them. Of course I can. Didn’t you just see I beat all the boys in kickball? I’m the Tetherball Queen! Of course I can do this! You guys are crazy.”

In no way had I even considered that I couldn’t do what I put my mind to. But when the coach said that, I was like, “Well, shoot … maybe I’m not good enough … I’ve always been the best on my team, but hey, maybe there’s just so many more girls that are way better than me.”
I guess it just shows you that anyone can have doubts. Even now, as a seasoned pro, I can be training and start thinking, Oh man, my teammates are so good. I’m not good enough! It creeps in, it really does. And that’s when you have to instill confidence in yourself, and tell yourself that you’re good enough until you really believe it. Trust me, it works.
Failing that, you need some kind of hero to pull you out of it. And luckily, I had that. My dad stepped in and just went, “Screw that. We’re going to another team. That guy can have his own thoughts, whatever, but it’s not the truth.”
You have to instill confidence in yourself, and tell yourself that you’re good enough until you really believe it.
I joined another team.
It wasn’t the truth.
With a team and a coach who believed in me, I excelled. I made the Olympic program, I made the U-17 national team. I began to realize that the note I had written to my mom was really going to come true. And then came the stuff that most people know about: My senior national team debut in 2010, the Olympic gold, the World Cup win, all that.
When I line up for games now, as one of the most experienced players on the team, I wonder who will come next. I look at the girls holding the flag and think, Do they know who we are? — and by that I mean, do we inspire them?
Are we setting the right example?
Are we making little girls want to become soccer players?
I think a lot about these questions. And one of the most difficult things, I feel, is carrying myself in a way that girls see and want to emulate. It’s making sure that I’m always on, and by that I mean always saying and doing the right things. And that’s hard in today’s age, because if you make one little slip-up, you pay for it. It spreads across social media like wildfire. It’s devastating.
And what really makes it hard for us female athletes is that we don’t make the same money as men do. Just flat-out.
Let me explain. If you look at any of the top players in Europe, I probably make like … I don’t know … a nickel to their dollar?
Something like that.
Taylor Baucom/The Players’ Tribune
And so you need to try to compensate for that. As a team, I feel we do a good job trying to correct that imbalance. Personally, I work with a lot of sponsors and partners, I do a lot of appearances and stuff outside of soccer. That helps. But it also means that I need to open myself up more. I need to be that public figure, I need to give more of myself on social media. Male soccer players, they don’t have to do all that. They have their agents, they have their people handling social media. They live their private lives.
It’s just not the same for us.
And it’s like this for every woman. Everywhere.
It angers me so much that we still have to talk about these same old issues. That we still have to hear about them from women in different lines of work. That the change is so slow and snail-like.
But at the same time, you want to see progress, and we do see progress. It‘s not at the pace we want it to be, but without people being vocal about it, it would probably be even slower. So we need to keep speaking up.
We need to keep fighting.
We need to keep speaking up. We need to keep fighting.
It was so cool that we had so many eyes on us at the 2015 World Cup. To hear that we played in the most-watched US soccer game ever in the U.S., male or female, that was really awesome. That so many people were surprised by that was pretty interesting too. So I think we have a special few months ahead of us. I really believe that the World Cup can be a platform for female empowerment, and we want to capitalize on that, both on and off the field.
What all of this will lead to, I hope, is that women will build each other up and continue our fight for a seat at the table. I hope that the next time we are out there singing the national anthem, the girls holding the flag will look back at us, take courage, and be inspired by what we do.
And who knows … maybe later that night, one of them will write her mom a little note.
Hey, Ladies: Here Are The Reasons Dudes Are In Love With Alex Morgan
Men already have plenty of reasons they should date a woman who plays soccer, but US superstar Alex Morgan is no ordinary soccer player, and she’s definitely no ordinary woman.
The 26-year-old is an Olympic gold medalist and a FIFA Women’s World Cup winner and while success is always a turn-on to the opposite sex, Morgan’s on-field accomplishments only begin to explain why every dude — Ben Higgins included — is head over heels in love with her.
Morgan, a San Dimas, California native, makes soccer look effortless with a ball at her feet, but it’s her make-you-go-weak-at-the-knees smile that brings all the boys to the yard — or the World Cup final stadium.
Alex Morgan is hot, duh, but I have to start at the top to fully appreciate her beauty. I’m talking about that long, flowing hair, which can only be described in one word: flawless.
Morgan is the type of chick who wakes up beautiful. She doesn’t need to put on makeup or do her hair, but that’s not to say she doesn’t look like a knockout when she does go the extra mile to get all dressed up.
Whether she rocks the sporty look or dresses up for the occasion, Alex Morgan always steals the show. But who am I kidding? If she were wearing a garbage bag, she’d still be the center of attention in any room.
“Baby Horse,” as Morgan is affectionately known by her fans, may not be the most imposing figure on the soccer field, but she’s got muscles in places I never even thought to check.
Where they make legs like that at?
Even more impressive than Morgan’s beauty is the vibe she gives off, which almost says, “I was the hot girl in school, but I didn’t let everybody know it. I let the ugly kids borrow my ruler because it was the right thing to do, not because I wanted to be a hero. And, I pushed my friend who was in a wheelchair to class every day.”
Morgan wasn’t just the hot girl in school who everyone loved, she was also the girl running circles around every guy on the varsity soccer team after class.
There’s a reason only one of these two World Cup winners is smiling and has her name on the back of both jerseys. Just saying.
If you need more substantiated reasons every male with a heartbeat loves Alex Morgan, look no further than the cover of FIFA 16, the most dude-approved video game of all time.
Sure, she has to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, but it’s probably because she feels bad for the little guy.
Plus, you know Morgan would be down to play FIFA 16 with you for shots, old-school pregame-style.
Still not convinced? How about the fantasy all guys — and surely a lot of girls — have of walking into their bedrooms and finding Alex Morgan lying there wearing nothing but her World Cup and Olympic gold medals?
Then, after you and Alex Morgan engage in the greatest moment of your life, she would place the medals around your neck, crowning you champion of the world.
Hey! Hey, come back to Earth!
But, while fantasies are all well and good, I don’t know too many bros who are into getting beat up. So, if you need another reason dudes love Alex Morgan, how about the fact she’s not Hope Solo? Just kidding, Hope… kind of.
Getting back to concrete facts, Alex Morgan is super toned. She lifts. She runs. She kicks. Some dudes may find that intimidating, but I think most guys are turned on by a woman who not only works out harder than they do, but also has more passion in one week than they’ve had their entire lives.
Seriously, where they make them legs at?
You know what would be better than a photo of you and Alex Morgan? You and Alex Morgan in a photo with adorable kittens and puppies you both helped rescue from abusive homes.
Yup, Morgan is an outspoken animal lover who would literally kick the crap out of any animal abuser who crosses her path.
“@ASPCA: #PeopleThatAngerMe Animal abusers! http://t.co/d20jOna6” not only angers me, but literally makes me sick to my stomach — Alex Morgan (@alexmorgan13) December 19, 2011
It’s yet another reason to love this badass, goal-scoring machine.
It’s hard to pin down one reason every dude loves Alex Morgan. This is the chick you always knew was hot but then saw her in a bikini for the first time and had to run into the ocean to hide your boner.
She’s the woman who personifies class but isn’t above getting sloshed with friends at a wine tasting.
She’s the one who’s bigger than you’ll ever be but will somehow never make you feel inadequate.
She’s a real ride-or-die chick who will always have your back, always make you smile and always keep you on your toes.
*Disclaimer: I’m well aware Alex Morgan is married. That changes nothing.

United States women’s national team star Alex Morgan returned to her National Women’s Soccer League team on Saturday night, though the 2019 World Cup champion didn’t play in the match.
Morgan, 30, returned to the Orlando Pride on Saturday night to watch her teammates take on Portland Thorns FC.
The World Cup star rocked her jersey with jeans while taking the field before changing into a different outfit for the game.
Morgan took some pictures with fans.

Morgan has revealed some big plans for her post-World Cup career. Along with her soccer career, she wants to start a female-focused media company.
“Men’s sports are always in the spotlight,” Morgan said. “We’ll be focusing on women in sports and sharing the stories that I think a lot of people want hear, and girls need to be given access to.”
Morgan is one of several USWNT players looking to achieve things outside of her sport.
“We’ve been able to see that we can use our platform to speak up about important issues,” Morgan said. “We’re authentic to who we are and what we stand for, and we’re becoming more brave and comfortable in our own skin.”
