US Women Beat Thailand 13-0 In World Cup Competition

United States' Carli Lloyd right celebrates with teammates after Lloyd scored her third goal against Japan during the first half of the FIFA Women's World Cup soccer championship in Vancouver British Columbia

The Germans ended up winning it all, though they ran out of goals in their next game against England, settling for a 0-0 tie.

To recap: Morgan scored five of the Americans' 13 goals.

"Obviously we have the utmost respect for everyone we play, but it's the World Cup", said team captain Rapinoe. Lloyd has seven career goals in World Cup play, including three in the 2015 final against Japan.

If you tuned into the Men's World Cup in 2018, or 2014, or 2010, or 2006, but aren't turned into this year's Women's World Cup, it's time to reconsider.

The score seemed straight from a game of football - not fútbol - and it proved historic.

The two teams were the last to kickoff in the group stage for the monthlong tournament. "But we also feel like we've got more to do".

"When you get a deluge of goals like that, it's a good feeling".


"She's a quality player and to stay encouraged through this tournament, because she's living out a dream that most girls and women don't get to".

Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis netted twice each while Lindsey Horan, skipper Megan Rapinoe and substitutes Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd also found the net for the US in an embarrassingly one-sided Group F encounter watched by a crowd of more than 18,000 at the Stade Auguste-Delaune.

At the final whistle, Lloyd and Christen Press were seen consoling the Thailand goalkeeper.

The group-leading USA, who had a 39-2 shot advantage to improve to 6-0-2 in World Cup openers, next faces Chile before playing Sweden in its last match before the knockout rounds begin. Morgan put her arm around Thailand's Miranda Nild, who was wiping away tears on the pitch.

"They were disappointed of course, they meant to make an impression in this first match and they were disappointed", coach Nuengruethai Srathongvian said through a translator. She was the first to get the USA on the board, scoring in the 12th minute and then again in the 53rd minute. "Yes, they are all athletes and they will be resilient".

The U.S. will next face Chile on Sunday, while Thailand will be up against Sweden.

Former U.S. national soccer player Heather O'Reilly says the American women are ready to make their mark on this year's World Cup tournament and hopefully bring home back-to-back trophies.
