U.S. soccer players Abby Wambach and Alex Morgan appeared on American Idol on Wednesday to chat about the World Cup with host Ryan Seacrest. 

The players presented Seacrest a jersey bearing his first name and the number 14, representing American Idol's 14 seasons, and suggested the host be the U.S. team's water boy at the FIFA's Women's World Cup this summer.
