US Women Beat Thailand 13-0 In World Cup Competition

US Women Beat Thailand 13-0 In World Cup Competition

The 13 goals surpassed the record set by Germany during the 2007 World Cup, when they beat Argentina 11-0.

Three different players scored the four goals, and veterans and newcomers alike chipped in. She still has two games to showcase herself, to get some goals.

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

Lloyd also tied Birgit Prinz's record for longest goal-scoring streak in the Women's World Cup.

Carli Lloyd will be making her fourth appearance in the Women's World Cup; she's only the ninth player in USWNT history to accomplish that.

"I think they could have won with humility and grace but they couldn't manage to do that". Morgan put her arm around Thailand's Miranda Nild, who was wiping away tears on the pitch.

"Honestly, you're going up against a side that is the first time in the World Cup, they're just happy to be there..."

The group-leading USA, who had a 39-2 shot advantage to improve to 6-0-2 in World Cup openers, next faces Chile before playing Sweden in its last match before the knockout rounds begin.

"They were disappointed of course, they meant to make an impression in this first match and they were disappointed", coach Nuengrutai Srathongvian said.

Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favorites, who are in pursuit of a fourth world crown, with a header in the 12th minute and from then on there was no stopping the champions.

Srathongvian said soccer in Thailand is still growing and there is a limited pool of players to draw from. "Yes, they are all athletes and they will be resilient". And I think that to be respectful to opponents is to play hard against opponents. In the final group match before the knockout round, the Americans will travel to Le Havre to face nemesis Sweden, who they've been grouped with six times in World Cup play.

Before the USWNT takes on Chile on Sunday, let's take a look at some of the most lopsided games in World Cup history, including a jaw-dropping qualifier bonus. The two national teams have only faced off once before, resulting in a 9-0 win for the 2016.
