Nothing can stop Alex Morgan from finding the back of the net.
Not even pregnancy.
In a video shared online, the preeminent striker for the USWNT was spotted ripping some impressive shots on goal at seven months pregnant.
And it wasn't the first time videos of the mom-to-be working on her game hit social media in recent months.
After announcing her pregnancy in October, Morgan made it clear that she intended to stay in shape to contend for a spot on the USWNT's 2020 Olympics roster. According to a photo she posted on Instagram, Morgan is due in April, which leaves the striker just three months after giving birth to get back into form.
Head coach Vlatko Andonovski already has more talent on his hands than he can bring along with him to Tokyo, and the current front line has been particularly impressive through the first three games of Olympic qualifiers. Still, all signs point to Morgan doing everything in her power to plead her case and get back on the pitch to contend for her second gold medal. But it will undoubtedly be an uphill battle.
