United States of America 13-0 Thailand

United States of America 13-0 Thailand

Alex Morgan scored five times as United States of America recorded the biggest win in Women's World Cup history in Reims on Tuesday, but the manner of their one-sided victory drew flak on social media, with American players criticised for over-celebrating their rampant humiliation of inferior opposition.

The Women's World Cup heads into the second week with the pre-tournament favorites living up their billings so far.

Meanwhile, Rob Stone, the host of the Fox Sports World Cup coverage on American television, sided with Twellman. Alex Morgan alone had five goals, matching the most in one game in tournament history.

"Every goal matters when the goal differential is the tiebreaker in group play".

Her critique triggered online death threats, which Kyle addressed in a social media post on Tuesday night. If you think they over-celebrated, you should see me after I floss my teeth.

"I did say I thought it was excessive and disrespectful the goal celebrations of the American team once the score hit 8-0. Everyone is allowed their opinions towards my thoughts 100 percent but please leave the death threats!"

Solo said her heart went out to the Thailand players.

Rapinoe pointed to the team's young players who scored their first World Cup goals and said they had every right to celebrate, including Samantha Mewis, Rose Lavelle, Mallory Pugh and Lindsey Horan.

"This was disgraceful from the United States", said Rustad. I respect Thailand, I celebrate that they are here.

Why were the USWNT labeled as "insecure" for the manner of their celebrations in breaking the record for a scoreline in a World Cup match - any World Cup match? The lawsuit cited several instances in which pay for USA 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.

As little as the US women report earning, they're paid far more than women across the world, according to World Cup players who shared their earnings with the New York Times.

"This got humiliating at some point".

"Personally I think if you're putting in as much work as you put in to get to a World Cup - and for a lot of those players that was their first World Cup goals - by all means celebrate", she said.

"We really just came into the game really wanting to showcase ourselves", Morgan said after the game.

She had become one of the strongest and most eloquent advocates for gender equality within both the USA program and global circles.

Some context; my opponent was a professional Squash player and as hard as I'd trained to make my national team there was no hope of me beating this woman. "Imagine it being you out there".

Morgan, who now has 106 goals for her country, matched a record set by her compatriot Michelle Akers by scoring five times in a World Cup game.

Co-Captain Alex Morgan told ESPN that "you can never have everyone love you", when asked about some of the critical comments leveled at her team for the on-field celebrations and the 13-0 drubbing.

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour also had no time for the critics.
