Alex Morgan one-ups Cameron Smith with trophy celebration of her own
While Cameron Smith might have said “hold my beer” this past weekend, Alex Morgan is saying “hold my margarita.”
The USWNT star Morgan played the role of hero against Canada during the CONCACAF W Championship on Monday. With the score tied at 0-0 in the 78th minute, Morgan delivered the decisive goal on a penalty kick to lift the United States to a 1-0 victory.

Morgan celebrated the victory, which also clinched the United States a berth in the 2024 Olympics, in style. She was inspired by Smith, who just won The Open Championship over the weekend. After his victory, Smith said that he was going to celebrate by seeing how many beers fit into the Claret Jug, the trophy presented to the winner.
Not to be outdone, Morgan decided to fill up the CONCACAF trophy she had just won with margaritas. She was able to fit roughly 20 margaritas into the trophy and tweeted out a picture of her spoils.

While a 20-margarita celebration is quite a feat, this was Morgan’s third career CONCACAF Championship win. The celebration probably felt a little sweeter for Smith, who just won his very first major title. Oh, and Smith also did actually find out exactly how many beers the Claret Jug holds.
