Alex Morgan may be one of the world's greatest female soccer players, but over here at Swim Daily, we also like to think of her as one of SI Swimsuit's prettiest athletes of all time.
As the U.S. Women' Soccer Team gears up for the World Cup in Edmonton, SI decided to give our girl Alex and her teammates the cover treatment. Front and center on the national cover, as well as featured on one of four rotating covers highlighting each cover star individually, Alex looks just as gorgeous in her uniform as she did in body paint.
The World Cup preview in this week's issue points out that the ladies of U.S. Soccer are ready to "party like it's 1999"—the last time the U.S. "seized the biggest prize in women's soccer." Will they be victorious? Only time will tell. But will Alex and her 22 teammates look fabulous doing it? We know that for sure.
Be sure to tune into watch Alex make history on the pitch during the FIFA Women's World Cup on June 8th against Australia and on June 12th against Sweden!
