US Star Megan Rapinoe Claims England 'Are Not As Good As Phil Neville Thinks They Are'

US Star Megan Rapinoe Claims England 'Are Not As Good As Phil Neville Thinks They Are'

US co-captain Megan Rapinoe has fired out a shot at Phil Neville's England side in her new book, One Life.

But the US women's team were heavily criticised after co-captain Alex Morgan did her tea-drinking celebration.

The Daily Telegraph has published an extract from Rapinoe's new book where the 35-year-old winger admits that to "tease the English is such a pleasure."

And Rapinoe, who was the Golden Boot winner for the tournament, also took a cheeky swipe at England manager Neville.

The Ballon d'Or winner said: "I was injured for the semi-final against England. It was Alex's 30th birthday, she was feeling pretty jaunty.

"After her goal she raised her pinkie in a gesture to imitate drinking tea. It was epic. To tease the English is such a pleasure, they react immediately and get completely outraged.

"It sparked a whole new level of rivalry with Phil Neville's team, who are good, although not as good as Neville thinks they are. We won 2-1, and they were out."

Megan Rapinoe And Alex Morgan Confirm US Women’s Team Will Appeal Against Equal Pay Defeat

published at10 months ago

The American star told BBC Sport: "There was lots of talk about arrogance, celebrating too much, but this is what you want.

"These are the goals you want and this team is giving it to you -- it's defiance but it's cheeky.

"I feel like we're going to have fun. We have a very serious role to play so it is kind of a balance of that.

"We have always done this -- we have done cartwheels, sang into microphones, made snow angels when we played in the snow.

"The next-level trolling with the tea [by Alex Morgan] is so funny. It's so funny because you English are so uptight sometimes. It was just so perfect, you know?"

The US would secure their record fourth World Cup title with a 2-0 victory over the Netherlands at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.
