Alex Morgan, senior forward for the Cal women's soccer team, may have put herself one step closer to a spot on the U.S., squad for the Women's World Cup next year.

At a national team training camp in Pennsylvania, Morgan netted her first international goal to earn the U.S., a 1-1 tie against China on Oct. 6. The goal came in the 83rd minute, just 12 minutes after Morgan was subbed into the match.

This match was the final U.S. exhibition prior to the CONCACAF Women's World Cup qualifying tournament at the end of this month. The game was therefore Morgan's final opportunity to perform for coach Pia Sundhage before she finalizes her roster for the tournament. Morgan will be back in Cal uniform by Sunday to play against USC, according to coach Neil McGuire.
