USWNT hero Alex Morgan sips '20 margaritas' out of CONCACAF W Championship trophy after final winner

The striker's late penalty ensured that her country lifted the trophy for the ninth time

Alex Morgan slotted home the winning goal in the final of the CONCACAF W Championship against Canada and celebrated the win in an amusing fashion. The game was decided by a penalty kick with 12 minutes remaining in the 90-minute period, giving the Americans their ninth CONCACAF title and a spot in the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Morgan, the USWNT's star player and match-winner, referenced PGA Tour golf star Cameron Smith's plans to celebrate his triumph at The Open by filling the trophy with beer on social media as she drank her own choice of alcoholic drink from her country's latest piece of silverware.
