US break record against Thailand

US break record against Thailand”

"I said in the pre-game, yes, you want to score a lot of goals, yes, you want to make your mark because of the goal difference". But they are facing criticism from some for continuing to exert maximum effort to score late in the contest, and for what critics have deemed to be excessive celebration for the late-match goals.

"After beating Thailand 13-0 & celebrating each goal #USWNT may have lost fans, domestically & internationally.and sealed themselves as villains of the @FIFAWWC". It was one of the biggest blowouts in the tournament's history and made USA tie with Sweden for one win each, although the US led with the most scores.

The highlight reel for Team USA's opening match in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 is very long.

"I just think it was way too much scoring, way too much celebrating", Kilmeade said.

"I think it's disrespectful if we don't show up and give our best and play our game for 90 minutes", she said. "Hats off to Thailand for holding their head high". "Every goal matters in this tournament, and that's what we were working on".

Perhaps the harshest criticism of the US came from Canadian analysts on TSN's World Cup show.

Even U.S. cable news has gotten in on the debate.

"This got humiliating at some point".

The Norwegians are without world player of the year Ada Hegerberg who refuses to play for her country because she says her national federation does not take the women´s team seriously.

"As a coach I don't find it's my job to go and harness my players and rein them in, because this is what they've dreamt about, a world championship".

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", 2015 World Cup victor Wambach wrote via Twitter.

The Thailand rout set a number of Women's World Cup records. "You're going up against a team that's first time in the World Cup, they're just happy to be there. If US goes on to fail, their behavior will be on a loop", said Alexi Lalas, another former USA worldwide turned TV pundit.

Samantha Mewis and Rose Lavelle each added a pair of goals for the United States, who broke the record for goals and margin of victory in a FWWC game.

The USWNT was truly off to the races in the second half where the team scored nine goals, including four in a six minute span. Mewis opened the dam with a strike on the half-volley and was followed by goals from Morgan, Mewis again, and Lavelle. The previous record margin was Germany's 11-0 victory over Argentina in 2007.
