[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP QUALIFYING] The USA moved closer to qualifying for the 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany with a 1-0 win over Italy thanks to Cal senior Alex Morgan's goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time.

Morgan, the youngest player on the U.S. team at 21, entered the match in the 86th minute and tallied after Abby Wambach jumped to flick Carli Lloyd's pass on to Morgan, who raced past a defender into the right side of the penalty box, cut toward goal and smacked a sharp shot past Italian goalkeeper Anna Picarelli from six yards out.

The second leg will be played Nov. 27 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, Ill.
