U.S. Women’s National team forward Alex Morgan netted the 98th goal of her prolific international career on Tuesday, as the USA defeated Scotland 1-0 in their 2018 finale.

The 39th minute game-winner, which came on an assist from Mallory Pugh, was Morgan’s 18th goal of 2018, which is the second most in a calendar year for her (she scored 28 in 2012) and finishes the year with 98 career goals in 153 caps.

Morgan also finishes 2018 leading the USA in minutes played with 1,500. Morgan has scored 25 goals over her last 26 WNT matches, a run that began at the end of 2017. The 25 goals have included six braces and one hat trick.

The USA finishes 2018 with an unbeaten record of 18-0-2, marking only the fourth time in program history that the USA finishes a calendar year in which it played 10 or more games without a defeat.
