The expansion Orlando Pride arenâ€™t wasting any time making waves in theÂ National Womenâ€™s Soccer League (NWSL).
Despite having existed for less than a week, the teamÂ has agreed to a dealÂ withÂ the Portland Thorns toÂ bringÂ U.S. womenâ€™s national team superstar Alex MorganÂ to the club.
She now gets to live in the sameÂ city as her husbandÂ Portland ThornsÂ and play for former USWNT coach Tom Sermanni.
As per Grant Wahl of SI:
In return for Morgan, Portland is set to receive Orlandoâ€™s first pick in the NWSL draft, two international slots, U.S. national team fullback Meghan Klingenberg (whoâ€™s expected to not be one of the two protected national team players from Houston) and likely Lindsay Horan as the first new allocation coming in from overseas if Horan decides to join the NWSL from PSG.
Womenâ€™s soccer is alive and well.
