We received such high praise and positive feedback from our article about Nocerino, especially regarding the short insert about Servando Carrasco that we decided to go in more depth about the beloved Carrasco and bring you the top reasons Alex Morgan wears the pants in the relationship.
Straight Cash Homie:
Let's be real here, Alex Morgan makes bank. Face of Orlando Pride, face of USWNT, on the cover of FIFA16 and did we mention that she's endorsed by Nike? Mrs. Morgan is rolling in the dough. Oh and Carrasco is listed on MLSplayers.org as making a mere $85,375.00. Alex bringing home the bread in the family.
Stats Don't Lie:
Alex Morgan went on to score a goal within 12 seconds of kickoff this year in a International Friendly, while Carrasco hasn't hit the back of the net since 2013 when he was playing with Seattle. While Morgan didn't exactly have a injury free 2015 calendar year, it should be noted that she has almost as many goals as Carrasco's appearances in the last two years. Morgan is a baller, she don't want no scrubs.
Safe to say that Carrasco will be an Orlando City player as long as Alex Morgan is the face of Orlando Pride. OCSC was smart in trading for Carrasco last year with the goal of attracting Morgan to the City Beautiful. Sure he's a mere depth player, but at least he won't have to worry about putting his resume on Monster.com any time soon.
Face of USWNT and FIFA16:
On every ad for Women's Soccer and next to Messi on the cover of FIFA16? It's obvious that Alex Morgan is not only recognizable nationally but internationally as well. Have you seen her on Sports Illustrated? Come on. Servando is the type of guy you wouldn't recognize at 7-11 while buying a bag of Dorito's. Matter of fact, there's a guy at the nearby 7-11 that looks like him.
P.S. Carrasco, shave your mustache nerd.
