United States crushed Ireland, 5-0, thanks to a superduper hat trick performed by none other than Olympic gold, Alex Morgan.

Shoot! It’s a slick surface!’ So I did. I was feeling it.” Alex said after the victory.

Alex scored the first time at the 24th minute mark, then again at 34 minutes, then again at 44 minutes. Sydney Leroux added two more goals to boost the U.S. to the victory and 4-0-2 for the season.

“Every time she touched the ball something dangerous happened,” Acting U.S. coach Jill Ellis said.
