  1. Alex Morgan. Two World Cups, 1 gold Olympic medal, 1 bronze Olympic medal, several tournament medals, many individual awards, 1 UEFA medal, etc.

  2. Macario. Because she's killing it internationally. International players fear her right now, they're all talking about her. They no longer fear Alex Morgan. But, not a bad problem to have, Macario vs Morgan, both are great weapons to have in your arsenal, but Macario is starting to peak. We should capitalize on that.

  3. if uswnt call ups were based on club performance like on the usmnt, then alex morgan wouldn't even have made the uswnt team the last four years. but the uswnt doesn't want that kind of equality with the usmnt.

  4. Alex was bad before the last World Cup. She spent the World Cup flopping. Alex only relied on her speed and she’s 30 now

  5. Morgan is a great finisher, unfortunately she has not been great at much else and Vlatko's system demands more of the players than only being able to do one thing while you're out there. Morgan can be marked out of a game (see: this past weekend vs OL Reign – invisible, 10 successful passes over 90mins+) while Cat offers so many different options in you want to press and play forward.
