USWNT’s Morgan suits ’20 margaritas’ in CONCACAF W Championship trophy
Trophies could make glorious drinkware, and the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship trophy is the most recent to hitch the custom. After scoring the profitable purpose for the U.S. towards Canada within the ultimate, striker Alex Morgan celebrated by pouring an “estimated 20 margaritas” into the trophy.
Morgan was impressed by golf star Cameron Smith after he received the Open Championship and celebrated by pouring as many beers into the Claret Jug trophy as doable. It turned out to be solely two beers. For Morgan and her teammates, there was extra to go round as they began their much-deserved margarita-fueled celebrations within the locker room.
When the U.S. received a penalty with lower than quarter-hour to go and the rating at 0-0, Morgan stepped as much as slot it away.
By securing their nation’s ninth CONCACAF W Championship (of which Morgan has three) and a berth within the 2024 Olympics, the USWNT cement their place as the highest crew within the area. And who else to guide celebrations than the 33-year-old star who has stepped up in large video games for her nation on quite a few events for a decade now.

U.S. coach Vlatko Andonovski had nothing however reward for the USWNT star, saying “She’s a winner. She’s executed it earlier than, she’s received World Cups.”
The celebrations are indicative of a hard-fought match as Morgan appears to be like forward to 2023, when she’ll hope to win her third World Cup trophy, and presumably prolong the custom of consuming celebratory drinks out of trophies to the world’s best stage.
For now, maybe she has sparked a brand new custom, and a file of 20 margaritas, for CONCACAF W Championship trophies.
