Alex Morgan is the 2022 NWSL Golden Boot winner.
Her 15 goals came three short of the record for most goals in a single season, set by Australian star Sam Kerr, who recorded 18 goals in her 2019 Chicago Red Stars season.
While every one of Morgan’s goals this season have appeared on highlight reels, Just Women’s Sports highlights the best of the best from the star striker.
Morgan began her campaign in historic fashion, scoring four goals in a single match during the San Diego Wave’s May home opener. She became just the third NWSL player to do so.
