Morgan Brian Replaces Alex Morgan ... In Hope Solo's Goalkeeper Squad

Everyone knows Hope Solo is the U.S. soccer team's starting goalkeeper. And you may know that Ashlyn Harris, Alyssa Naeher and Adrianna French are her backups. However, most of you probably didn't know that Alex Morgan is an honorary part of the team's goalie squad.

That is, she was a part of the goalkeeper squad. Until she got replaced by Morgan Brian. Solo made the shocking announcement on Wednesday on Twitter.

And if you're wondering how Brian's skills in the net stack up, obviously Solo made her try out for the prestigious role. Footage from said tryout is below, for your enjoyment.

While that's certainly better than most of us would do, I think we should still probably hope all of the official goalkeepers don't get the flu at the same time or anything.

See something entertaining on social media that you think deserves to be shared? Let me know on Twitter, @darcymaine_espn.
