Third CONCACAF Award for Alex Morgan


The USA’s Alex Morgan was last night named the CONCACAF Female Player of the Year, winning the honor for the third time in its short five-year history.

The 28-year-old forward scored 9 goals in 13 games for Orlando Pride in the NWSL, won three trophies with Olympique Lyonnais and appeared in 14 games for the USA, scoring a team-best seven goals and registering two assists.

Morgan told “It’s such a great honor to be named this. To all the fans who followed me throughout France and to the U.S., thank you so much for all that motivation. It really means a lot.”

In a vote equally-weighted between Member Association national team coaches/captains, media and fans, Sky Blue FC forward Sam Kerr – an Australia international – and Portland Thorns FC/Canada star Christine Sinclair finished second and third, respectively.
