13-0 win 'part of growing the game', says US captain

The USWNT began its World Cup defense with a 13-0 destruction of Thailand on Tuesday night in Reims, setting an all-time World Cup record for the highest margin of victory in a game. "Curious to see if anyone apologises for this postgame", Twellman tweeted to his 327,000 followers. 13-0 is unheard of. "Bury (Thailand) then move on but don't use anything that could be needed in future games", he wrote.

The U.S. women's national team's 13-goal outburst in their debut match at this year's World Cup was the most ever scored in a single game at the worldwide tournament.

The U.S. women's national team has been slammed for its celebrations against Thailand, with current Canadian national team star Diana Matheson saying USWNT manager Jill Ellis should be embarrassed at her team's antics. Imagine it being you out there.

"I think it's disrespectful if we don't show up and give our best, and play our game for 90 minutes". The Women's World Cup started on June 7 and is set to go on until July 7 with the US playing Chile and Sweden in the upcoming weeks.

"I respect Thailand, I spoke to some of them afterwards and they should keep their heads up". She also questioned whether the men's national team would be under fire for a similar result. The lawsuit cited several instances in which pay for US men's team, which has underperformed in recent years, far exceeded compensation for their counterparts on the women's team, who are the reigning World Cup champions.


Rob Stone, meanwhile, the host of the Fox Sports World Cup coverage on American television, sided with Twellman. Here are five things you need to know about her! "Pull it back, knock it around".

Federation Internationale de Football Association said they expected between "16,000 and 21,000" fans at Le Havre's 25,181-capacity Oceane Stadium for tomorrow night's clash between England and Argentina.

"There are some teams here that, since the last World Cup, have only played a handful of games, or only the qualifiers".

"The U.S. team each and every time the whistle blows is going to score as many goals as possible".
