Former Cal star Alex Morgan scored the second of her two second-half goals in the 85th minute to give the United States a 2-2 tie with France in an exhibition soccer match Thursday in East Hartford, Connecticut.

Making her second appearance in six days for the national women's team after a seventh-month layoff because of a stress fracture in her left ankle, Morgan scored for the first time in more than a year.

She scored the tying goal off a rebound in the 57th minute, beating goalkeeper Sara Bouhaddi.

"I feel like finally I am back and doing what I am supposed to be doing -- scoring goals," Morgan said.

The U.S. star has 46 goals in 72 games for the national team.

Morgan passed Julie Foudy (45) for 10th on the all-time goal scoring list.

"I am pleased for her, she's worked very hard to come back," U.S. coach Jill Ellis said of Morgan.

The U.S. will now go into its summer break before it resumes World Cup qualifying in October.
