Alex Morgan Buys Manchester United Jersey on First Trip to Old Trafford (Photo)


July 31, 2012

Alex Morgan was so excited about going to the “Theater of Dreams,” she decided to dress the part.

The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team plays its final Olympic pool-play game at Old Trafford on Tuesday, and Morgan marked her first visit to the historic stadium by buying a Manchester United jersey.

Just after arriving in Manchester, the star striker picked up United’s new home jersey ahead of her team’s walk-through. She captured the moment with a photo and shared it with the world on Twitter.

The U.S. women took a tour of the stadium and even went inside United’s locker room.

Morgan won’t be able to wear the jersey in Tuesday’s game against North Korea. But if she goes on a picnic before leaving the city, the United jersey wouldn’t look out of place on the table.
