The undefeated and #4 UVa women's soccer team plays host to Rutgers Friday as part of the Virginia Nike Soccer Classic.
Virginia star midfielder Morgan Brian is back in Charlottesville, after playing and scoring for the US Women's National Soccer Team in a friendly Tuesday night in Washington D.C.
Brian scored the final goal in the 72nd minute in a 7-0 win over Mexico.
The entire UVa women's soccer team was in the crowd to see their college teammate score.
"It was great to be a part of it and have a good buildup to that goal," says Brian. "Abby Wambach laid me off a great ball, and I just took it around the defender, and looked to place it, but the defender actually got a deflection and it went in. Once you step on the field at that level, they don't really realize how young you are, and at that point everyone's a player for the U.S. I've learned a lot from them, and hopefully I can keep being a sponge and bring it back here."
Virginia will host Rutgers Friday at 7 PM and Seton Hall Sunday at 2:30 PM.
