United States Women's National Team co-Captain Megan Rapinoe is one of the superstars of this year's World Cup, but the Soccer legend was temporarily upstaged by teammate Alex Morgan.

After sexist criticisms of the legendary team's celebratory antics upon scoring a goal, all eyes have been on the way the women's team behaves in victory.

When facing England earlier this week, Morgan pantomimed drinking from a tea cup, what some perceived as mocking the English tradition and an unsportsmanlike behavior.

Rapinoe was quick to defend her.

The co-Captain said:

"Wah, wah, wah. I mean, we're at the World Cup. What do you want us to do? This is the biggest stage, the biggest moment. I don't think anyone truly believes that we disrespect the game or disrespect our opponents."

Others couldn't agree more.

Even many of the English people rooting for their home team found Rapinoe and Morgan's antics to be in good fun.

You do you, ladies.
