Aside from Hope Solo, the status of United States Women’s National Team star Alex Morgan’s knee has been one of the biggest storylines as the USWNT begins group play tonight versus Australia.

According to multiple reports, Morgan will in fact be available to play tonight.

Ahead of the match, USWNT coach Kill Ellis spoke about Morgan’s availability, per Jeff Kassouf of ProSoccerTalk.com.

“Alex has been back in training, fully. So, you know, I think she’s available. Obviously we’re going to look at what our needs are, but I’m just excited now that she is back in 100 percent training – looking great, sharp,”

However, if called upon, Morgan will be ready to play.

Morgan’s last appearance for the U.S. came on April 4 in a 4-0 win over New Zealand, and her last competitive match was on April 11, when she played 75 minutes for the NWSL’s Portland Thorns.

Morgan, who has been sidelined since April when she suffered a bone bruise on her left knee, has been practicing with the National Team and if healthy enough, will start up front alongside Christen Press. Former FIFA World Player of the Year, Abby Wambach will most likely come off the bench for Morgan in the second half.
