Alex Morgan rips FIFA for exploiting women



Alex Morgan is no doubt the face of American soccer, and the most important player on the U.S. Women’s National Team as they head into the 2015 World Cup in Canada, hoping to win our nation’s first World Cup since 1999.

Morgan discusses her recovery from her recent ankle injury, and much more in the video interview below, but check out what’s below that, where Alex Morgan rips FIFA for their exploitation of women.

Morgan says that the horribly corrupt soccer governing body is using women like “guinea pigs,” by making them play their World Cup matches in Canada next summer on artificial turf.The men will play their next two World Cup tournaments on grass — and that has Alex Morgan quite upset.

“They are treating us as second class to the men,” Morgan told TMZ Sports. “Using the women as guinea pigs, in their experiment, is just not right.”
