    Soccer Star Alex Morgan Addresses Possible Retirement After “Devastating” World Cup Loss – E! Online


    Alex Morgan is getting real when it comes to her future goals.

    Following the U.S. Women’s National team’s loss to Sweden in penalty kicks during their August 6 knockout round match at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the soccer star set the record straight on her retirement plans.

    “It’s really hard to swallow, this game.” Alex told ESPN in a post-match interview. “It’s going to take a while for me to process this day. I’m not planning to hang up my boots anytime soon right now, so it’s just one day at a time.”

    And despite coming up short in their quest for their third consecutive World Cup win, the 34-year-old is proud of the way her teammates played.

    “I felt like in the run of play we did really well,” she continued. “We broke them down extremely well. We limited them in front of our own goal. It’s hard to lose on penalties.”

    The loss to Sweden ended an overall subdued performance by the defending champions, who after a win over Vietnam and ties against the Netherlands and Portugal made it out of the group stages in second place.
