U.S. Soccer Player Criticized for Post-Goal Celebration

 

U.S. Soccer star Alex Morgan is taking some heat for "sipping tea" after scoring her goal against England during World Cup action on Tuesday.

Morgan mimicked sipping tea after scoring the go-ahead goal with a headder.

Some fans thought Morgan was pretending to smoke a joint while others thought the post-goal taunt was unsportsmanlike.

Morgan's sixth goal of the tournament did spark a series of clever memes marking her achievement. Buzzfeed has a list of them here.

The American women will play in the World Cup finals on Sunday.
