Alex Morgan doesn’t need to face the goal to score

Dirty Tackle

Alex Morgan's awesome finishing did not stop with the end of the Women's World Cup. In fact, it seems to have only gotten more ridiculous. Coming off the bench to play the second half in the Western New York Flash's match against Boston, Morgan came up with an amazing equalizer in the 87th minute to earn a 2-2 draw.

Despite her opponents' incredibly bright neon pink kits and a field lined for about 18 different sports, Alex pulled off a spinning shot with her back to the keeper, using the outside of her foot to ping the ball off the bottom of the crossbar and into the goal. Madness.

While this goal and the positive reaction it has received surely made Mario Balotelli jealous, it probably also sparked 40 more marriage proposals for Morgan.
