Morgan, who helped guide the USA women's national team to a gold medal in the 2012 Olympics and wins in the 2019 World Cup and the 2015 World Cup, said she believes she will continue to play at a high level after having a child. The Opening Ceremonies for the Tokyo Games will be on July 24.

She also scored six goals and recorded three assists in the national team's run to the 2019 World Cup title this past summer.

"I want soccer to be the biggest sport in the USA and the way the youth soccer trend is going right now, it cuts out the lower half of the income classes".

With motherhood and the Olympics ahead, Morgan said she's refraining from making too many plans. For Morgan, she wants to be the next great athlete that continues their career after becoming a mother.

She said the legal battle did not interfere with the team's focus.

"More access to the sport, especially in an underserved area of Los Angeles, is important to me, " Morgan said.

Morgan will be in good company as USWNT teammates Sydney Leroux and Shannon Boxx have both recently returned to the team after having children.
