What They're Saying: Alex Morgan

"There were definitely a lot more sprints than in training! I will get used to it pretty quickly. Once I came on, it was more of a transition game, less position-oriented. So I am looking forward to getting more of the game to settle in a little better, because that end to the match was pretty back and forth."

    Without meaning too, Morgan has indicated that the women's game in the US league is more sophisticated than England's. To stay ahead of Spain and other countries, we need to continue to improve our positional game to supplement our ability to strike quickly in the final third. There is a synergy. The threat of both unbalances opponents and makes both work better.

    You had better understand that Spain in particular is rapidly improving their game.
