There's something about that mother-daughter bond thing.

Vickie Brian can't explain it to you, but neither does she question it.

"I was sitting in the dentist's chair having my teeth worked on this past April when my phone started buzzing, and, without looking at it, I knew it was Morgan," says Brian, the assistant director for operations in the Daniel Guggenheim School of Aerospace Engineering.

"And it was Morgan. She was telling me she'd made the team, that she was going to France. She was the 23rd pick for the team."

Sidelined for two years with what turned out to be adductor injuries, Morgan Brian, the fiercely competitive midfielder for the 2015 World Cup-winning U.S. Women's National Soccer Team, had rehabbed herself back onto the roster for the much-anticipated 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, currently underway in France.

Morgan Brian started in the USA-Chile game on June 16, and will continue to sub during the upcoming series, as needed. The next game will be Monday, June 24, against Spain.

Vickie Brian last saw her daughter compete on the world stage at the 2015 World Cup in Canada.
