Twenty-one year old striker Alex Morgan has made a positive impression on the U.S. Women’s National Team since debuting in March of last year. The UC Berkeley graduate has scored seven goals in her first 15 caps and has carved out a role as an impact player off the bench. Her seven goals have come in just 520 minutes of action, an average of a goal every 74 minutes. As she prepares with her U.S. teammates to face England on April 2 at Leyton Orient’s Brisbane Road (live on ESPN2 at 3 p.m. ET), the top pick in the 2011 WPS Draft by the Western New York Flash sat down with ussoccer.com to discuss her role on the team, who could beat her in a foot race and why she is a huge Seattle Sounders fan.
