MIAMI, Florida For the third consecutive year and fourth overall (2013, 2016, 2017), Alex Morgan of the United States is Concacaf’s Female Player of the Year.

It is easy to see why.

Morgan led the United States Women’s National Team to a sparkling 18W-2D-0L record in 2018, which included a 5W-0D-0L record at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship that saw the U.S. finish the tournament as champions with 26GF and 0GC.

Morgan played a major part in her team’s qualification for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The 29-year-old FW from San Diego, California won the tournament’s Golden Boot by scoring seven goals over the course of the five games.

The highlight of Morgan’s tournament came in the 6-0 Semifinals win over Jamaica. Not only did the victory stamp the U.S.’s ticket to the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, but it came with Morgan delivering a brace.

Things kept rolling into the Final and it was Morgan who polished off the 2-0 victory for the U.S. against Canada with a late goal in the 89’ to give the U.S. its eighth Concacaf Women’s Championship title.

At the international level, Morgan completed 2018 with 18 goals, fittingly scoring both the first goal and last goal of 2018 for the United States and ends the year just two goals shy of the century mark in international play.

Her performance at club level was no exception. As a member of the Orlando Pride, Morgan was one of the top scorers of the team, finishing the NWSL season with five goals in 19 matches.

Whether for country or for club, 2018 marked another spectacular year for Concacaf’s top female player.
