Alex Morgan is having an excellent 30th birthday, you guys.
The USWNT star scored the go-ahead goal in the 31st minute of today’s 2-1 win over England, adding onto a Christen Press goal in the 10th minute of play. It was Morgan’s first time scoring since her record-breaking 5-goal performance in game one, and the birthday girl celebrated with a power move for the ages:
