Who Is Alex Morgan – The the Soccer Player’s Husband & What Is Her Salary?

American professional soccer player and Olympic gold medalist, Alex Morgan has a total income of $3 million.

One of the best forwards in the women’s soccer team for the United States, Alexandra Patricia Morgan plays for the Portland Thorns FC in the NWSL League. Having been drafted number one in the 2011 WPS Draft, Morgan started playing soccer at a young age and was part of the University of the California, Berkeley women’s soccer team.

Early Professional Career

Morgan started playing professional football for Western New York Flash and soon went on to big ranks winning the league championship. Her role during the league winning season is what got her into the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup for the first time.

She also became the youngest player in the national team that year. A woman known for her scoring skills, Morgan’s best goal should be the 123rd-minute winning goal against Canada during the 2012 London Olympics.

With 20 goals and 20 assists in 2012, she was ranked sixth in the list of youngest women soccer players to score 20 goals in a single year while also being named as the US Soccer Female Athlete of the Year. A finalist for the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2012, Morgan has also written a book with Simon & Schuster entitled ‘The Kicks’ which became one of ‘The New York Times Best Seller’.

Who is Her Husband?

Servando Carrasco and Alex Morgan

After dating for nearly seven years, Alex got engaged to her longtime love, Houston Dynamo MLS player Servando Carrasco and by December of 2014, they got married. The two have been together for a very long time since they began dating when they were both in college. They both attended University of California, Berkeley, and were both very good players and captains.

They got engaged in December of 2013 at the Manhattan Beach, California, and finally got married a year later, making them a soccer power couple. The couple had a perfectly romantic beach wedding on New Year’s Eve in front of 180 guests at Rancho Dos Pueblos in Santa Barbara, California.

As much as Alex is a star in her own rights, her husband seems to be able to match her completely since the two are soccer royalties. Carrasco has quietly cultivated a professional career on the field.

He joined UC-Berkeley in 2007 and quickly added a much-needed spark to the Bears’ offense. In his first season, he recorded seven points on two goals and three assists. As a sophomore Carrasco was named All-Pac-10 second-team and started in all but one game.

He met first met Morgan when they were both playing soccer at UC-Berkeley and began dating shortly after and the rest they say is history.
