After Alex Morgan got her head on a Lindsey Horan cross and directed it into the English net to give the Americans a 2-1 lead, she decided to send her own message.

She stood up straight and mimicked sipping a cup of tea.

“It was just a little of pinkies up,” she smiled after. “… That’s the tea.”

“Maybe I can send her some Tetley’s,” said English goalkeeper Carly Tedford, who seemed amused. “Maybe that’s just her sticking two fingers to someone. I don’t know who it is.”

The forward has now scored six goals this tournament and remains in pole position to win the golden boot alongside England’s Ellen White, who trails Morgan on assists.

Piers Morgan urged the Lionesses to make the US “choke” on their beverage, prompting others to shoot back with taunts about the shared surname between tweeter and goalscorer.

Sorry Piers.
