US legend Alex Morgan publicly invited Taylor Swift to attend one of his football matches before launching into a cheeky dig at American football.
Global pop star Swift has made headlines in recent weeks as speculation grew over her romance with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.
Swift has now been spotted attending a slew of Kelce’s NFL games, confirming that a romance is blossoming.
The Grammy Award-winning star was recently pictured in New York alongside Wrexham co-owner Ryan Reynolds as Kelce’s Chiefs took on the New York Jets.
This prompted Wrexham chief Humphrey Ker to launch a call to bring the singer-songwriter to the racecourse to watch a League Two match.
But now, Swift has an offer a little closer to home if she chooses to continue her sports tour.

That’s because USWNT star Morgan gave Swift, who she’s already met, the chance to watch a game in the plush California environs.
On the table is an open offer for Swift to watch her friend Morgan line up for a San Diego Wave game following their NWSL Shield victory.
And Morgan took advantage of the invitation to launch a cheeky dig at the NFL in the process.
“There’s always an open invitation,” Morgan told reporters when asked if Swift might make an appearance at an upcoming match. “I mean, American football games are fun, but real football is even more fun.”
The 34-year-old football phenom was quick to choose sides in the ongoing debate over the right address for the sport.
While Americans claim the sport is called soccer, a notion opposed in many countries around the world, Morgan clearly let his soccer roots do the talking.
Morgan is a two-time World Cup winner who won the Champions League during her time with Lyon in 2017. She also had a short-lived spell at Tottenham in 2020.
