Earlier this week, Alex Morgan and the United States women's national team advanced with a slim victory over Spain in the Round of 16.

The USWNT 2-1 thanks to two rather questionable penalty kick goals from Megan Rapinoe.

Morgan has been the focus of opposing teams throughout the World Cup. In the match against Sweden, Morgan left at halftime after taking studs to the leg.

Spain continued that physical play earlier this week, knocking Morgan to the ground several times. Despite the physical play against her, Morgan is still tied for the lead in most goals scored during the tournament - in one less game than Sam Kerr and Ellen White.

It's been a big year for Morgan, who's starred both on the field and off of it.

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit featured Morgan in this year's issue, posting more photos from her shoot during before Friday afternoon's game.

Morgan, who has appeared in the issue before, made sure to post a few photos to her Instagram account as well.

Morgan isn't the only USWNT star to make an appearance in the magazine. Both defender Abby Dahlkemper and star Megan Rapinoe were in the shoot as well.

USA and France are set to play in the biggest game of the tournament in the quarterfinals on Friday afternoon.

The game is set to kick off at 3 p.m. E.T on FOX.
