EYEAFRICA TV: Paris, France:”Not since Boston dumped it in the sea has England been dissed with tea like this.
Alex Morgan’s ‘tea drinking’ goal celebration, after heading the winner against England to send her side into the World Cup final, was definitely a dissed.
England forward Lianne Sanderson thought so. She called it “distasteful”.
As the newspaper saw it, Morgan’s swipe at Phil Neville’s Lionesses was the best burn against the English since a load of tea was chucked in the sea in Boston in 1773, setting in motion American independence from the yoke of British rule.
‘Sticking it to the Brits’ was the US women’s national team take on it too. It said Morgan’s strike was “in honor of those 13 colonies”. (Quick history lesson – the 13 colonies were the original US colonies that fought for, and won, independence back in the 18th century.)
