Alex Morgan becomes a hilarious meme after appearing to mock England with a tea drinking celebration

England's dreaming of finally winning a second world cup came to another bitterly disappointing conclusion on Tuesday night as the Lionesses crashed out of the tournament following defeat to the United States.

Phil Neville's team succumbed to a 2-1 loss to the Americans in a game full of controversy and incident as England had a goal disallowed, missed a penalty and had a player sent off.

It was the sort of capitulation that we have all come to love and cherish from English football teams but before all that people at home were getting rattled by the celebration from US striker Alex Morgan, who scored their second goal of the game.

The 30-year-old who was celebrating her birthday scored a perfectly timed header and celebrated by imitating the drinking of a cup of tea, with a pinky held aloft and everything.

This immediately upset a lot of people both English and American, who felt the celebration was disrespectful towards the Lionesses.

However, most people thought it was hilarious and soon turned it into a meme.

Some people were a bit confused about her celebration and thought that she might have been smoking something...

It should also be pointed out that tea isn't even English so we really don't have a foot to stand on in this issue.
