Alex Morgans fourth career goal was one of her most important. On Nov. 20, 2010, she scored in the fourth minute of second-half stoppage time in Italy, in the first leg of a home-and-home Womens World Cup playoff. The goal gave the United States a 1-0 lead heading to the second leg at home, and the U.S. won 2-0 on aggregate to qualify for the Womens World Cup.
