Federation Internationale de Football Association has withdrawn a claim that 1 million tickets have been sold for the Women's World Cup and now says the total includes people paying nothing to attend games, including VIPs and even medical staff.

The reigning champions had to wait five days to start their campaign but produced an ominous performance that doubled as the biggest win in tournament history, surpassing Germany's 11-0 trouncing of Argentina in 2007.

The U.S. rout over Thailand has given rise to a pair of controversies: (1) should the U.S. have run up the score and (2) should U.S. players have indulged in major celebrations after scoring the late goals.

"I didn't really think about that while we were playing but right when we walked off".

However, if they win the group, they could end up facing hosts France in the quarter-finals. I think it unlikely that those final few goals against hapless Thailand will be needed for the U.S.to finish on top, but you never know.

Morgan celebrated her incredible night by counting off each of her goals on her hand. Would you say this about the men?


Wambach, a former star of the national team, responded to comments about the players' actions on Twitter.

For all that have issue with many goals: "for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", 2015 World Cup victor Wambach wrote via Twitter.

Imagine seeing the women who inspire you most, in person, on the stage you dream of competing on.

But after the game, the team received criticism on Canadian sports network TSN from a pair of former Canadian national team players who thought the Americans showed disrespect by continuing to score with the game out of reach, as well as celebrating each goal despite the score being as lopsided as it was.

"I respect Thailand, I spoke to some of them afterwards and they should keep their heads up". She has scored frequently at the tournament. For that matter, few women would think of it.

"I accept that we were not good enough and that the opponents were far more powerful".
