Morgan Scores Her First Goal For Spurs
After making her return to the field with the U.S. Women’s National Team on Nov. 27, forward Alex Morgan took another step in her return to action, scoring her first goal for Tottenham Hotspur in the team’s 3-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
Morgan converted from the penalty spot in the 84th minute to secure Tottenham’s first WSL victory of the season. It was her first goal for club or country since scoring the game-winner in the USA’s 2-1 win over England in the semifinals of the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup on July 2, 2019.

Morgan was subbed off in the 85th minute and finished with four shots – including two on goal – in a long and productive outing.
On Nov. 27, Morgan came on at the half in the USA’s 2-0 victory vs the Netherlands, making her first appearance for the USWNT since the 2019 Women’s World Cup Final, a span of 509 days.
It was also Morgan’s first appearance for the USA since the birth of her daughter, Charlie, on May 7, and made her the 13th woman to appear for the USWNT after becoming a mother.
