United States women’s national team forward Alex Morgan scored in stoppage time to give her team a 1–0 win over France in the SheBelieves Cup on Sunday.

With both teams scoreless and the referee getting ready to blow the final whistle, Mallory Pugh executed a perfect through ball to give Morgan a step on the nearest defender on her way to goal. Morgan then took the shot from just inside the box, curving it past the goalkeeper into the right side of the goal. 

Morgan’s goal sealed a second-straight win for the USWNT against top European competition. The U.S. beat England 1–0 on Thursday on a 67th-minute goal from Crystal Dunn. The Americans complete their play in the competition against Germany, in a rematch of the 2015 Women's World Cup semifinals, on March 9.
