Birthday girl Alex Morgan made history on Tuesday when she became the first player in Women’s World Cup history to score a goal on her natal day.
Oh, and that goal she scored in the 31st minute? It broke the tie against England and gave the USWNT the lead in its 2-1 victory.
Alex Morgan scores her first goal since the opening game and retakes the lead in the Golden Boot race (6 goals, 3 assists)

Was Morgan throwing shade at the tea-loving English and their insecurity about how confident the USWNT are? Or was she simply doing her version of the famous Kermit tea-sipping meme? Why not both!
