U.S. 13-0 Thailand

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

They would go on to score nine more, taking their tally of goals in the competition to 125, more than an eighth of the total scored by all teams all time.

The United States' 13-0 win over Thailand is the largest margin of victory in either the men's or women's World Cup.

Fifth minute, 0-0: United States of America thought it had scored after Alex Morgan tapped in Lindsey Horan's header, but the referee's assistant ruled her offside and disallowed the goal.

Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis each scored twice.


Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favourites, 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.

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.

That first Mewis goal was also a milestone for the Women's World Cup. Chile fell to Sweden, 2-0, to open group play on Tuesday and is 0-3-2 in its last five outings. Morgan refused to settle for a hat trick and tied this record by netting her final two goals in the 81st and 87th minutes.

A lightning storm midway through the second half saw the players taken off the pitch for 40 minutes, but the Olympic runners-up finally got the breakthrough with seven minutes remaining though Kosovare Asllani's strike.

The 2019 Women's World Cup final is slated for July 7. However, let's keep in mind that this win came against a Thailand team that's ranked 34th in the world, compared to the top-ranked USA.
