3 takeaways from USA's record-setting win over Thailand

3 takeaways from USA's record-setting win over Thailand”

After netting four times in six minutes shortly after the restart, they then added six more goals in the last 16 minutes.

"They're the number one team in the world and for me, I'm disgusted", added fellow panellist Kaylyn Kyle, a former Canadian player. And I think that to be respectful to opponents is to play hard against opponents. "It's a tournament where goal differential is important", Ellis said.

"When you get a deluge of goals like that, it's a good feeling".

The pre-tournament favorites and defending champions took it right to Thailand in the opening minutes, with a Morgan goal ruled out for offside inside of 10 minutes. Seven different players scored for the USA, with Morgan's five leading the way.

"We really just came into the game really wanting to showcase ourselves", Morgan said after the game, the Associated Press reported. We got a lot of attacks and I think we were really clinical in the number of attacks that we did get. "Every goal matters in this tournament and that's what we were working on this game".

The margin of victory became more and more of a talking point as the USA tallied goal after goal in a prolific second-half performance that solidified their status as the tournament's co-favorites, alongside France.

Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis netted twice each while Lindsey Horan, skipper Megan Rapinoe and substitutes Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd also found the net for the United States of America in an embarrassingly one-sided Group F encounter watched by a crowd of more than 18,000 at the Stade Auguste-Delaune. Morgan scored her fourth on an easy shot from the middle of the box after Rapinoe weaved through the left side of the Thailand defense. She now ties with Michelle Akers' previous World Cup record set in 1991.

The U.S. scored nine goals in the second half in the most dominant display the Women's World Cup has ever seen.

So expectations are the US women's national team will get off to a strong start today in the 2019 Women's World Cup, as the defending champions open against Thailand in pool play. Thailand had no answer for what the No. 1 ranked team in the world brought to the table, and they were a bit fortunate not to lose by more. Now, Morgan has eight career World Cup goals. The margin of victory was the biggest in World Cup (men's or women's) history.
