Lyon manager Gerard Precheur gambled that USWNT star Alex Morgan could overcome a left hamstring injury to star in Thursday’s UEFA Women’s Champions League Final in Wales.

Morgan, 27, has left the battle between Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain before the half-hour mark, and will see whether she’ll become a UWCL winner from the sidelines.
