Watch: Alex Morgan ties USA, Germany with impressive strike
Alex Morgan scored late in the first half to tie the United States with Germany in the SheBelieves Cup.
Nearing the midway point of the match, Morgan took a lobbed ball in the box, touched it with her left around a defender, and volleyed with the right for an impressive, high-difficulty finish. Germany’s Anja Mittag scored in the 30th minute for a 1–0 lead, and Morgan’s goal tied it 1–1.
Samantha Mewis scored just minutes later for the 2–1 lead, taking the ball with room at the center of the pitch and driving a left-footed strike into the bottom-left corner.
The score would hold as the USWNT defeated Germany 2–1. With the victory, the United States won the title in the inaugural tournament.
