Morace started playing soccer when he was nine. From 1974 to 1998 she played for eleven different clubs in Italy.

Until the beginning of 2010, she was the record national player with 150 internationals , but was then outbid by Patrizia Panico . With 153 international matches, she was also a record-breaking European national player until September 11, 2001, when she was replaced by Norwegian Hege Riise . She scored 105 goals in 153 international matches. This makes her one of only ten players who have scored more than a hundred goals .

In games of the Italian championship, she scored more than 500 goals. In eleven consecutive seasons between 1987/88 and 1998/99, she won the championship with her club.

In 1991 she received her first coaching license. In 1996 she graduated as a lawyer. In 1999 she became the first woman to coach an Italian men's professional team, AS Viterbese Calcio (Serie C1). However, she resigned after only two games due to the heavy media pressure. The following year she took over the coaching position of the Italian national team and the U-18 team.

At the beginning of May 2011 she was appointed to the CONCACAF Executive Committee, in which she is to represent the interests of women's football.

At the 2011 World Cup , Canada lost all three games and was eliminated after the preliminary round with the worst goal difference of all participants. On July 20, Morace resigned as a trainer. After finishing as a trainer with Canada, she became CEO of the Juventus Academy Roma in September 2013 on the premises of the Mondofitness fitness chain in Rome .

In September 2015, Morace became Technical Director of the Australian football club Floreat Athena FC . She held this job until summer 2016.
