Alex Morgan trolls entire English nation with 'sipping on tea' celebration after scoring in World Cup semi-final
USA star Alex Morgan trolled the entire English nation after she celebrated by “sipping on tea” in their World Cup semi-final clash
The Orlando Pride forward headed home from a Lindsey Hora cross – putting USA 2-1 up against Phil Neville’s Lionesses.
Morgan poked fun at England by pretending to drink a cuppa in celebration.
England and Juventus forward Lianne Sanderson called the celebration "distasteful" while working as a pundit for beIN Sports.
Sanderson said: "I expected Alex to grab a goal but I'm not that happy with that celebration.
"You can celebrate how you want, but for me that is a bit distasteful, and I don't think she needs to do that.
"I'm a big believer in the American's and how they celebrate but for me this was a little bit disrespectful.
"For me, I could be wrong, but it's based upon playing against England, we love our tea in England, I'm not a tea drinker but that's what we're connected with so I think it's a little bit distasteful."
USA had taken a 1-0 lead thanks in part to poor defending from England after Lucy Bronze failed to head away a cross that Christen Press nodded home.
Press came into the side in place of USA skipper Megan Rapinoe – who has been attacked by Donald Trump in the build-up.
Phil Neville's side bounced back, however, thanks to a clinical finish from Ellen White.
It took the striker's goal tally to six, becoming the tournament's leading scorer.
However, Morgan regained the USA's lead with the deft header – equalling White's tally.
