13-0 win 'part of growing the game', says U.S. captain

13-0 win 'part of growing the game', says U.S. captain

All three of those women are former Canadian soccer players now working for The Sports Network, and each was not happy with the reaction of the US women's soccer team during its 13-0 win over Thailand in the World Cup in France.

Kyle was even less pleased, ripping the US players, in particular Morgan, who could be seen counting goals on her fingers, saying she was "disgusted" seeing those kinds of antics from one of the World Cup favorites. That's more goals than the USA men's team scored in its last 11 World Cup games.

The two teams were the last to kick-off in the group stage for the month long tournament. They suggested the more like Germany.

"Obviously we have the utmost respect for everyone we play, but it's the World Cup", Rapinoe said after the match.

But the 33-year-old Rapinoe said the champions were happy to snatch the goals record from Germany as they go in search of their fourth world title. And it's a tournament where goal differential is a criteria.

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", the scorer of a record 184 global goals tweeted to her 679,000 followers.

As well as Morgan's five goals, Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis both scored twice, while there was one goal each for Lindsey Horan, Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and veteran Carli Lloyd.

"I think we have to come out and play as hard as we possibly can in every single game".

"Not sure why the #USWNT is "wasting" any of their set plays when the score is 3-0". "Imagine it being you out there". Alongside Abby Wambach, she appeared on American Idol to announce that the season 14 victor would record the official song for Fox's coverage of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup.

Is it Ok to celebrate scoring no matter what, or do you think being a good sport should come first? You want those players to have those feelings because then they go into games.

Former U.S. worldwide Abby Wambach, whose world goal-scoring record is being chased by Canadian captain Christine Sinclair, also defended the scoreline. "If US goes on to fail, their behavior will be on a loop", said Alexi Lalas, another former USA global turned TV pundit.

The Thai women qualified for the 2019 tournament by reaching the semifinals of the 2018 AFC Women's Asian Cup where they lost in a penalty shootout to No. 6 Australia before losing the third-place match 3-1 to No. 16 China.
