After Alex Morgan got engaged, her friend and her co-conspirator Sydney Leroux unofficially took the title of America's most eligible female soccer player.

That didn't last long.


Leroux announced Monday that she is dating Sporting Kansas City star Dom Dwyer. Just like Morgan, whose fiancee Servando Carrasco plays for the Houston Dynamo, Leroux fell for a fellow soccer player.

Leroux posted this photo to her social media accounts:


Last week, Dwyer posted this photo for "Woman Crush Wednesday":

The two even engaged in a cute little back-and-forth on Twitter with Chicago Fire striker Mike Magee:


Up until this point, Dwyer's name may have most associated with a post-goal selfie he took over the summer. But the 24-year-old Brit has emerged as one of the best players in MLS. His 22 goals in 2014 were the second most in the league.

Leroux, also 24, was raised in Canada but played collegiately at UCLA. She currently plays for Seattle Reign FC and helped lead the United States to the gold medal at the 2012 Olympics.

As it turns out, Leroux and Dwyer have more in common than soccer. They're both dog lovers who have gone as far as to create Twitter accounts for their pups.
