Tottenham Hotspur adds one of the best strikers in the world in American forward Alex Morgan, who joins the Women’s Super League club on a short-term loan from Orlando Pride.

The new mom, 31, will get back in form ahead of next summer’s Olympics in Japan, joining fellow USWNT stars on Women’s Super League clubs after Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle signed for Man City and Tobin Heath and Christen Press headed across the city to join Manchester United.

Morgan has 107 USWNT goals in 169 caps. She’s tied for fifth in goals with Michelle Akers and 33 caps off the top ten all-time.
