There's a line between celebrating and showing up. Alex Morgan took part in the latter.

Morgan didn't need to mock the English by sipping an imaginary cup of tea. She was basically rubbing their faces with the fact that she scored a goal and it was completely unnecessary.

She needs to show a little more class.

Do you know the best way to stop a celebration? DON'T LET THEM SCORE.

The English are so wrapped up in what Morgan did, they didn't stop to look at what they could've done to prevent it. If they didn't let her score, none of this would have happened.

As far as the celebration goes, it's pretty tame. Cristiano Ronaldo did a pelvic thrust after a goal while under investigation for rape. Sipping tea is nothing.
