Alex Morgan walked away with some hardware Wednesday night at the ESPYs.

The American-born soccer superstar won Best Female Athlete, and I have to say we fully agree with her walking away with the award. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Not only did she just lead the women’s national team to another World Cup title, but she’s arguably the coolest woman in all of sports. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Watch her acceptance speech below.

Alex Morgan is literally everything I want in an American icon. She’s a freak-of-nature athlete, she’s a winner, she’s charismatic, she’s funny and she’s an absolute smoke. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

Seriously, what more could you want?

I know plenty of people hate the women’s national team because some of the members are ultra-political, but I don’t care about that at all when it comes to Morgan.

She wins and she wins big. The woman is damn near unstoppable in the world of soccer, and she just comes off as such a chill person.

If you cheer against her, then you probably also cheered against our Miracle on Ice team and hate freedom.

Do you really want to be known as somebody who hates freedom? If not, then you need to support Alex Morgan like the rest of us.

She’s an American icon and I’m happy as all hell that she won Best Female Athlete at the 2019 ESPYs. There’s not a single other woman I can think of that could even compare or compete with her.

Props to Morgan for being an absolute badass. It’s good to know she’s on our side.
