Alex Morgan became one of the most recognizable figures on the U.S. women’s soccer team due to a combination of her playing talent and good looks. Morgan, who scored key goals against France and Japan in the World Cup, disappointed millions of single men around the country when it was revealed she has a boyfriend. Her boyfriend’s name is Servando Carrasco, and he is a soccer player for the MLS Seattle Sounders.
Morgan and Carrasco have been dating for over three and a half years, and they met at Cal where they both played soccer. Morgan was drafted by the Western New York flash of the WPS and had to move across the country. So what is keeping them together? Many bachelors hoping for a shot with the forward will be disappointed to know that two communicate regularly thanks to Skype.
In an interview with the Seattle Times last month, Carrasco explained the situation. “She’s in Buffalo and I’m in Seattle. Skype has been the glue of our relationship,” he said. “She’s been here a couple times. She’s come to Seattle twice and might come up before she leaves for Germany. She’s doing her thing and I’m doing my thing. The good thing is we’re in the same lifestyle. It’s OK if we don’t talk to each other until 6-7 o’ clock — if she’s been practicing or had something to do with the team. That’s always good; we can relate to each other.”
Hopefully for their sake they’re able to remain together and avoid a Rory McIlroy situation, which will be even more challenging given Morgan’s newfound celebrity status. In the 24 hours since the World Cup finals, Morgan’s twitter following exploded and she’s now over the 150,000 follower mark. If memory serves correctly, she was not above 30,000 followers prior to the knockout stage of the tournament.Google+
