USWNT wins most lopsided game in World Cup history

USWNT wins most lopsided game in World Cup history

4-0, 50 minutes: Samantha Mewis' deflected effort gave her the 800th goal in Women's World Cup history.

Indeed, in those three defeats, they have failed to score a single goal while conceding 21 times. Lindsey Horan, Mallory Pugh and Megan Rapinoe each had a goal as well to round out the scoring.

Morgan's dominance started in the 12th minute of the match when she headed a ball off the foot of Kelley O'Hara.

The defending champions have lost just one global game since July 2017 and have won their past seven in a row, scoring 36 goals in the process, and have not conceded in any of their past five matches.

On the Women's World Cup Twitter account on May 7, Federation Internationale de Football Association wrote that "You can still buy tickets for a few matches" - despite it now being apparent more than 70 per cent of games were not at capacity.

If Tuesday is any indication, the United States appears to be well on its way to a second straight World Cup title and the team could very well set more tournament records along the way.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sweden eventually beat a resilient Chile side 2-0 in the other match in Group F, which the US fully expect to top.

European champions the Netherlands began their campaign with a 1-0 win over New Zealand in Le Havre.

Kickoff: The national anthems have played, and US versus Thailand now is underway. Both of those numbers constitute Women's World Cup records. Only Mia Hamm (276), Christie Rampone (311) and Kristine Lilly (354) have earned more. The United States and Thailand are in Group F alongside Sweden and Chile. The American's lone legitimate challenge come on June 20th against Sweden, in a match that should determine who takes first place out of the group.
