Alex Morgan gets engaged, Twitter mourns
Alex Morgan, the star forward for the USWNT, announced her engagement to her longtime boyfriend on Monday night, and the outcry on Twitter was predictable.
Sorry, fellas. Alex Morgan, the star forward on the USWNT, is off the market.
Morgan announced her engagement on Monday night to longtime boyfriend and MLS player Servando Carrasco, a midfielder for the Houston Dynamo.
Morgan’s engagement in the soccer world is roughly equivalent to the heartbreak thousands of female college basketball fans felt when news of Aaron Craft’s engagement broke earlier this year.
A quick sampling of Twitter suggests some male soccer fans are hurting as well.

Sydney Leroux, Morgan's fellow forward on the national team, is apparently planning the festivities.
