Piers Morgan Meltdown During England Loss Was A Thing Of Beauty

Piers Morgan, not the most beloved of men. He's a dose at the best of times, and the only occasions he offers any real entertainment is when he loses the plot on Twitter.

Usually Arsenal are the source of his breakdowns, but it was the USA women's team that drove him up the wall today.

Piers started his tirade an hour before kick-off, when it was announced that Megan Rapinoe would not start the game. He had been critical of her celebration after scoring in the quarter final against France, and has apparently taken her comments that she would not visit the White House personally.

He believed that she was not amongst the starting XI as she had 'bottled it'. Probably nothing to do with the injury she was nursing in training yesterday to be fair.


He was fairly aggressive his support of England, although you get the feeling he was more concerned with the USA losing than his own country actually winning.

He even decided to place a friendly wager on the game.

Surprisingly quiet when the Americans took the lead via Christen Press, he wasn't long about resurfacing after Ellen White equalised.



Then came the highlight of the first half, his reaction to Alex Morgan regaining the USA's lead.

In a style that has become typical of the Americans in this competition, she proceeded to take the piss out of her opponents by pretending to drink tea.

Not only this was an insult to Piers, but he claims she didn't even drink it properly.


He accused her of doing something far more sinister.

Still not fazed by the fact his side were trailing at half time, Morgan notched up the trash talk another notch.


And then all of a sudden, England would have a lifeline. Ellen White had grabbed her second of the game, and the English were back in it.

Piers tweeted: 'BOOOOOOOOM!!!! 2-2 #ENGvUSA'. He was soon forced to delete that tweet.

VAR would have a say, and the goal was correctly ruled out for offside. Piers was angry (x10).

Good enough for him to be fair.

But VAR would have another say, and this time it went in England's favour. They would have a penalty!

Piers was excited.

They missed.

Piers was angry.

Presumably a shell of a man at this point, Morgan decided to ignore the sending off of Millie Bright.

As the final whistle sounded, we waited gleefully got his summary of the events that had unfolded over the past two hours.

Give us something Piers. Something? ANYTHING!

And then it came.

Gracious as always. We have no doubt he will be cheering on the good ol' U-S-of-A in the decider. To be fair to him, some charity is going to benefit from his cockiness.
