Soccer Star Alex Morgan Turns 25 As USA’s Consolation Prize [PICS]


The noble USA soccer team might have gotten kicked out of the World Cup competition, but American soccer is still a winner as long as we have hot heroines like Alex Morgan. The physically-fit femme is turning 25 years old today as one of the USA’s biggest soccer stars–which, yeah, is a relative thing, but Alex Morgan is the kind of gal who can get guys discovering futbol fever.  [photo via…]

A lot of guys are already big soccer fans, of course, and they know that Alex Morgan is a former Olympic gold medalist who’s now playing for the National Women’s Soccer League in the Portland Thorns FC club. Other guys will have to be told that means Alex Morgan is playing for a soccer team in Portland, Oregon. Teams are called “club” in soccer’s international lingo, and plenty of men would love to join any club that would have Alex for a member.

Sadly, soccer is still sexually integrated, so Alex didn’t have a chance to compete in the World Cup. The guys of the USA club could’ve used her. Morgan became a national heroine when she scored a record-breaking game-winning goal while competing against Canada in the 2012 London Olympics. That counted as her 20th goal of 2012, which made her one of only six players to score that many in a single year.

She was also the youngest U.S. player to ever make that happen. Alex has been a great ambassador for soccer over the years–and also has plenty of personality. You can see that in the following pics, which include Alex’s shots of her regular Halloween pairing with fellow soccer star Sydney Leroux. Check her out as Miley Cyrus and McKayla Maroney–but also enjoy Alex as herself, including some looks at her bikini modeling for Sports Illustrated
