They were teammates on the field, but Hope Solo and Alex Morgan are going at it away from the soccer pitch.
In October, the Team USA goalie posed naked for ESPN the Magazine's Body issue and now Morgan, another star on last summer's World Cup squad, is doing the same in the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
She's seen here in boday paint only:
"It was a completely new experience and definitely took some getting used to before I felt comfortable," Morgan says of standing around in nary an item of clothing. "I had to look in the mirror every five minutes to make sure I actually had a swimsuit on."
She does. Sort of.
This iconic, controversial edition of Sports Illustrated will be released on Tuesday, with the cover model unveiled Monday night on The Late Show with David Letterman.
