Piers Morgan Destroyed on Twitter After U.S. Soccer Victory Over England


After the U.S. national soccer team beat England 2-1 and secured their place in what will be their third consecutive Women’s World Cup final on Tuesday, the real loser was British pundit Piers Morgan.

Morgan, who has spent the World Cup thus far attacking members of the U.S. women’s team, had tweeted “make these cocky yanks choke on it” at England’s team just before his country’s loss. In the final minutes of the match, England suffered a called back goal and missed a penalty kick, while U.S. co-captain Alex Morgan nailed the game-winner.

Piers Morgan also responded to Morgan’s goal celebration — she pretended to take a sip of tea — by saying it “border[ed] on a declaration of war.” After tweeting a series of angry emojis, the U.K. pundit accepted the loss and vowed to honor a $1,000-to-charity bet he made with an American Twitter user.

However, that was not enough for most on the site, as his name quickly began trending along with an avalanche of anti-Morgan jokes and memes. Check out a few of the reactions below:
