ALEX MORGAN revealed her Tottenham team-mates have been roasting her in training for her ‘tea celebration’.

The USA star is known for trolling England when she pretended to sip a cuppa after scoring in their World Cup semi-final clash in 2019.

But the striker probably did not envisage she would be living and breathing the British lifestyle only a year later by signing a short-term deal with Tottenham from Orlando Pride.

The forward made a last-minute deadline-day decision to sign for the North Londoners in a bid for regular game time ahead of the postponed 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

Morgan, who has not ruled out making her debut against Manchester City today, said: “Kit Graham (Spurs team-mate) and some of the girls did the celebration in training when she scored.

"I wasn’t really looking, then all the girls were suddenly laughing and I realised why.

“You are not going to be seeing the tea celebration from me.

"I said to my teammates, ‘You can do it’, but I’m taking a step back.”

The Californian-born striker fell in love with Spurs when she used the shiny, plush Enfield training base with the USA squad ahead of last year’s World Cup.

And she dreams of performing at Tottenham’s shiny new main ground, adding: “I would absolutely love to play in the men’s stadium.

“We went last year to watch the Champions League final there. They had screens out in the middle of the field so we went with the national team.

“It’s a beautiful stadium, but I’m looking forward to touring it even more in depth hopefully soon with some of the girls who have also joined the club recently.

“It’s quite a lot larger than the stadium that we play at now, the Hive. But, you know, you always want to want to play on beautiful pitches and in perfect stadiums. It doesn’t get much better than that.

“I didn’t have an allegiance to any club in the Premier League before. So, I guess now it’s written for me. I have to be a Spurs fan.”

The striker's husband, Fort Lauderdale player and former LA Galaxy star Servando Carrasco, is still living in the US.

Morgan is living with her baby daughter and mother-in-law – who is helping with nannying duties while she is at training.

The American ace admits she found it tough to juggle motherhood and professional football at first, but is slow settling into a rhythm.

She continued: “The first week wasn’t actually very difficult because I was able to choose my own hours and I was training on my own in south Florida and then when I went to Orlando,

“But the days here are much longer, so just juggling being away from her that much and kind of leaving that responsibility with my mother-in-law,

“And figuring out not being able to nurse Charlie and having to breast pump between training and our meeting or training and our gym session, it’s been quite interesting!”
