USA star slammed for ‘distasteful’ display at World Cup
USA star Alex Morgan trolled the entire English nation when she celebrated by "sipping on tea" in the World Cup semi-final clash between the two nations.
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 Americans 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 had 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, making her the tournament's leading scorer.
However, Morgan regained the USA's lead with the deft header - equalling White's tally.
