USWNT’s Alex Morgan fits ’20 margaritas’ in CONCACAF W Championship trophy

Trophies can make excellent drinking vessels and the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship trophy is the latest to join that tradition. After USA’s winning goal against Canada in the final, forward Alex Morgan celebrated by pouring “estimated 20 margaritas” into the trophy.

Morgan took inspiration from golf star Cameron Smith after winning the Open Championship and celebrated by pouring as many beers as possible into the Claret Jug trophy. It was only two beers. There was still more to do for Morgan and her teammates as they began their well-deserved margarita celebrations in the dressing room.

When USA won a penalty with less than 15 minutes to go and the score was 0-0, Morgan stepped up to remove it.

By securing their country’s ninth CONCACAF W Championship (of which Morgan has three) and a spot at the 2024 Olympics, the USWNT cements its place as the top team in the region. And who else could lead the celebrations than the 33-year-old star, who has represented her country in major games on numerous occasions over the past decade.

US coach Vlatko Andonovski had nothing but praise for the USWNT star, saying, “She’s a winner. She’s done it before, she’s won world titles.”

The celebrations point to a hard-fought tournament as Morgan looks to 2023 when she will hope to lift her third World Cup trophy and potentially extend the tradition of consuming celebratory drinks from trophies to the world’s biggest stage.

For now, she may have sparked a new tradition and a record 20 margaritas for CONCACAF W Championship trophies.
