USWNT’s Alex Morgan Matches ’20 Margaritas’ on CONCACAF W Championship Trophy

Trophies can be made into great drinks, and the 2022 CONCACAF W Championship trophy is the latest to join the tradition. After scoring the winning goal for the USA against Canada in the final, forward Alex Morgan celebrated by pouring “about 20 margaritas” into the trophy.

Morgan was inspired by golf star Cameron Smith after he won the Open Championship and celebrated by pouring as much beer as possible into the Claret Jug trophy. It turned out to be just two beers. Morgan and her teammates had to go ahead in the locker room as they began their much-deserved margarita celebration.

When the U.S. won a penalty less than 15 minutes into the game and the score was 0-0, Morgan stepped up to save it.

By securing their nation’s ninth CONCACAF W championship (of which Morgan has three) and a berth in the 2024 Olympics, the USWNT will cement its place as the region’s top team. And who else would lead the celebrations, if not the 33-year-old star, who has already participated in many big games for his country for ten years.

USA 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 Cups.”

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

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