United States Women’s National Team (USWNT) forward, Alex Morgan has stated that the team is the best ahead of this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.
USWNT has won the last two editions of the World Cup heading into the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The ever-present team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup has won four of the eight World Cups.
Norway, Germany, and Japan won the other editions.
Alex Morgan believes the USWNT is better than ever.
In an interview with The Guardian, she stated: “I think this team is the best we’ve ever had.
“We have the confidence that we need to go into a World Cup and prove why we deserve to win. I feel like we have the talent, we have the quality, we have the right coach, the right players, the right camaraderie, the right mentality.”
“I don’t think that’s different from previous World Cup teams,” she elaborated.
“But I think there’s a lot of different small details in place to get us to the same place that we’ve been able to go in 2015 and 2019, 1999 and 1991.”
Touching on one of the bookies’ favourites, Sarina Wiegman’s England, Morgan said: “I think Euro champs, England, are definitely a team to be watching for.

“I think they’ve definitely come a long way in the last couple of years, and I think that’s credit to a lot of things,” she continued.
“Number one, their domestic league, that has just gotten so much better and so much more competitive in the last five years.
“Their federation’s increased focus on their women’s program that I don’t think existed more than five years ago, bringing the best and most qualified coaches, making sure that their players are compensated fairly.”
