Video: U.S. Strikes First In Women’s World Cup Final On Alex Morgan’s 69th Minute Goal
It took a while, but the wait was worth it. The United States had several near-misses in the early stages of the Women's World Cup final against Japan (and Japan had a potential scoring opportunity taken away by an offsides call that turned out to be incorrect), but American Alex Morgan finally found the back of the net in the 69th minute for a 1-0 U.S. lead.
Morgan's been hugely impressive in the last two games: she finished the Americans' scoring in the 3-1 semifinal win over France, and now, she just might have helped them clinch the title. Oh, and she just turned 22 earlier this month - the youngest player on the U.S. squad. Is it just us, or does she have a pretty bright future? Watch the goal below. (UPDATE: and Japan has struck back. We're tied. Video of that goal coming up.)
