SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Alex Morgan’s goal celebration is going viral.

Morgan scored the tie-breaking goal Tuesday against England during the 2019 World Cup semifinal.

After scoring the game-winning goal, Morgan pretended to sip a cup of tea.

In case you didn’t know, tea is a tradition British beverage.

It could also be a reference to the Boston Tea Party, when Americans protested by dumping British tea into the bay.

The timing is perfect, since Independence Day is only a few days away.

All we know is that Morgan is a legend.

And that’s the tea.
