USWNT celebration debate hijacked by death threats

Alex Morgan of the USA scores her team's fifth goal

Alex Morgan could not have had a better debut in this 2019 France World Cup, after scoring a super poker in the 13-0 thrashing against Thailand.

The USA's unpopularity among some nations was also revealed yesterday as the team were accused of "classless" and over-zealous celebrations during their emphatic win over Thailand.

Former Canadian worldwide player Kaylyn Kyle, working as an analyst for Canada's TSN at the tournament, said on air: "As a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that".

Rustad said on Canadian TV: 'Celebrating goals later in the game like this is just completely unnecessary.

Her critique triggered online death threats, which Kyle addressed in a social media post on Tuesday night.

Women's World Cup favourites the U.S. showed the world exactly why they held that status when they annihilated their Thai opponents 13-0 in their opening group F match on Tuesday. "Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?"

After she knelt a second time, US soccer said in a statement that kneeling was not an option in the future.

Seven different players scored for the Americans, tying Germany for the most in a World Cup match.


USA Today columnist Nancy Armour was unapologetic. We got a lot of attacks, and I think we were really clinical in the number of attacks that we did get.

"The @USWNT is #1 in the world & contributes higher revenues for @USSoccer than the men's team, but they're still paid a fraction of what the men earn", Warren wrote on her official Twitter page. "You know what I wanted to do?"

Opinion was split following the one-sided match, with some applauding the Americans for staying focused throughout, while others felt they should have eased off or not celebrated their goals with such enthusiasm.

"After beating Thailand 13-0 & celebrating each goal USWNT may have lost fans, domestically & internationally...and sealed themselves as villains of the ↕FIFAWWC".

But Solo said the United States could have toned it down a little.

The Americans play No. 39 Chile in Paris on Sunday. "Women deserve equal pay for equal (or better!) work in offices, factories, AND on the soccer field".

Morgan became the first player with five goals and three assists in the same match.

"The U.S. team is not here to be anybody's friend". The former National Football League quarterback made headlines when he knelt during the anthem before a game three years ago.

The top five finishers at the Asian qualifier advanced to the 24-team World Cup.
