It was the Alex Morgan show as the US downed Canada in the final of CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying. Morgan scored twice and assisted on two Abby Wambach goals as the US ran out easy winners over the host nation.

The USWNT is pissed. Seriously.How else would you explain the fact that they went 3-0 in the group stages of Olympic Qualifying with a +31 goal differential and no goals against?The latest installment saw the US beat Mexico by a score of only 4-0. I say only because with 14-0 and 13-0 scorelines in the previous two matches, 4-0 seems kind of anticlimatic.

McBride on the U-23 squad? Yes, please. He's a great option, and for so many reasons:
