Alex Morgan, one of the stars of the US Women's soccer team, is going viral this morning for a "struggle twerk" dance that she did in the locker room.

Alex and her teammates won the World Cup for US soccer on Sunday, and they celebrated the win by listening to Lil Jon, and dancing in the locker room.

After making headlines with her ‘tea drinking’ celebration against England, US star Alex Morgan was all over social media again after her team’s World Cup final victory – this time for celebratory moves of a different kind.

Striker Morgan helped the US to a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in Lyon on Sunday as the team sealed a second successive title and a fourth in total. 

Alex decided to try her best at twerking,. And well, it didn't work out so well. 


For the most part, folks on social media are excusing Alex' struggle dance moves. But they're not completely letting the soccer star off the hook. Dozens of memes have been created from the above video.

In case you're interested, here are some more pics of Alex:

In 2015, Alex was ranked by Time as the top-paid American women's soccer player, largely due to her numerous endorsement deals. Morgan, along with Canada's Christine Sinclair and Australia's Steph Catley, became the first women's soccer players to appear on the cover of FIFA video games in 2015. 

Morgan also appeared alongside Lionel Messi on covers of FIFA 16 sold in the United States.
