Morgan scores five as United States beat Thailand 13-0 in France

Alex Morgan celebrates her fifth goal vs Thailand USA's 12th

So expectations are the USA women's national team will get off to a strong start today in the 2019 Women's World Cup, as the defending champions open against Thailand in pool play.

There was no other way to describe the USA defeating Thailand on Tuesday night to kick off their Women's World Cup title defense.

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.

Lindsey Horan got her side's third, reacting quickest to a goalmouth scramble to fire into the roof of the net, and only an incredible sequence of play - featuring a host of last-gasp blocks, a smart Chor Charoenying save and a penalty appeal - kept the margin to three at the break.

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup will run from June 7 to July 7.

It was also Morgan's first-ever World Cup hat trick. The No. 1-ranked United States is the defending Women's World Cup champion.

It is the most goals scored and the most lopsided victory in World Cup history, according to Fox Sports' Rob Stone.

Only Germany (five) can boast more hat-trick scorers in Women's World Cup matches than U.S., with Alex Morgan becoming the fourth player do so for her country (Carli Lloyd, Michelle Akers and Carin Jennings are the others). She had seven goals during the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament alone.

The team is now tied with Sweden in Group F. The top two teams in the group move to the knockout stage.
