On the field, Morgan has just recently reached the 100-goal mark for the U.S. WNT, accomplishing this feat against Australia on April 4. She is the seventh player in U.S. Soccer history to join this exclusive club and the third to do so before her 30th birthday, joining Hamm and Abby Wambach in that accomplishment. Morgan and the U.S. WNT will look to defend their 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup title in France this coming summer.
Off the field, Morgan has been at the forefront in the fight for women’s equality and empowerment. Her commitment to inspiring future generations of female athletes is what places her among the most influential titans of 2019.
