The game in Lyon, France, lived up to its billing with the U.S defeating England 2-1 to advance to Sunday's final. But it didn't just do that.

Alex Morgan also bagged her sixth goal in five matches to put Jill Ellis" side back in front - and her "tea-sipping' celebration drew widespread attention on social media. If anyone in the stands on Tuesday was around when that happened, we can only imagine how offended they must've been.

With Morgan working the camera, the Instagram post begins with three teammates - Emily Sonnett, Rose Lavelle, and Sam Mewis - doing a choreographed dance before another teammate can be heard joyously screaming as she watched a video of the team's on-field celebration from moments earlier. "I was stressed out I couldn't even move", Rapinoe told reporters.

However, it was sadly the end of the road for Steph Houghton and the team as they were beaten 2-1 by the U.S. team captained by Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. But ultimately Solo's tendency to become front-page news, with two domestic violence cases and two suspensions from US Soccer, led to the end of her career with the national team.
