SALT LAKE CITY — The United States women’s soccer team prevailed over England on Tuesday with a 2-1 win in the World Cup semifinals.
And the players certainly talked the talk.
Alex Morgan, upon scoring the game-winning goal for the Americans, pretended to sip the tea.
That’s right. Alex Morgan sipped the tea.

Piers Morgan didn’t love it.
But in the end, well:

But that wasn’t the only moment that had Twitter talking. Ellen White looked to have scored a goal (before it was called offside). And she, rather insultingly, made a pair of goggle eyes with her hands — a move that comes from USWNT star Megan Rapinoe.
And Twitter freaked out.
OH NOOOOO ... Ellen White didn’t just do the “Megan Goggles.” #FIFAWWC— Nathan Hiatt (@NATE_HIATT) July 2, 2019
