Like Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux before her, Morgan comes to the Sounders with a significant national team resume and ties to the region.
"I am excited to play in a city that is so passionate about soccer," Morgan said in a press release.
The forward for Seattle Sounders Women and member of the US Women's National Team, who was also named the youngest player on the USA's roster at the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup (where the U. lost to Japan in the final), is dating fellow footballer Servando Carrasco – who plays for the Seattle Sounders FC.
The soccer duo met as freshmen at the University of California, Berkeley, and they've been going out ever since (approximately four years, or more! Carrasco (23) was born in Coronado, California, and grew up in Tijuana, Mexico (while going to school in San Diego, California).
"The Sounders have been one of if not the best fan support in MLS.
I can only imagine how Seattle fans would respond to having a full professional women’s team in the future." Sounder at Heart first reported the rumors of her imminent signing on Friday.
That's quite a Nike ad too, taking up the whole side of a building as Morgan does a medicine ball ab workout.
