When she joined the women's national team, some of the older players on the team were "intimidated" by her talent, USWNT great Abby Wambach said.

"It's hard to break into that team, let alone earn the respect of some of those older players," Wambach said on his wife Glennon Doyle's "We Can Do Hard Things" podcast.

Some players criticized Morgan's play, which Wambach took as a sign of insecurity

Wambach, however, leans in the other direction, constantly encouraging the young striker to trust her instincts, as Mia Hamm did for her.
