Alex Morgan Sips Tea While Celebrating Goal vs. England

Alex Morgan is the queen of subtle shade.

Alex Morgan spoiled the Brits' tea time on Tuesday when the star forward netted her sixth Women's World Cup goal for the UWSNT during the team's semifinal clash with England. The only thing the celebration was missing might've been some birthday crumpets–Tuesday also marks Morgan's 30th birthday.

Morgan's goal came at the 31-minute mark and followed a Christen Press header to put the USWNT up 2–1 over the Lionesses in the first half.

The tea time trend began on the team's trip off the bus and into the stadium. The USWNT shared a clip of Morgan and teammate Allie Long sipping some actual tea and starting the shade throwing before they took the field.

Ellen White scored for England in the first half, but she had a second ruled out for offside in the second half, and Steph Houghton missed a penalty that White drew later on, preserving the USA's 2-1 win. 

Morgan will have four more days to drink all the tea she wants before the USA plays in the Women's World Cup final, defending its title against either the Netherlands or Sweden.
