USA opens World Cup with record-breaking 13-0 rout of Thailand

Tobin Heath

The U.S. picked up right where it left off in the first half after the break, scoring four goals in just over 10 minutes. "I think we did that".

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.

"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". The Americans poured on the goals and defeated Thailand 13-0 - the biggest blowout in the tournament's history.

The goals: five from Alex Morgan, two from newcomers Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis, and one each from Lindsey Horan, Megan Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd.

The result surpassed Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007 and nearly doubled the USA own previous record - a 7-0 success over Taiwan in 1991. "We've got two more games to play and we need to bounce back".

Mystery Man! Wendy Williams Moves On from Ex Kevin Hunter
She also vaguely referenced her son's alleged assault against his father and said they'll be fine. I still got a very full life that I really adore. "I didn't plan on this but it is what it is".

Those six minutes in the second half - from the 50th minute through the 56th - were the perfectly encapsulation for what the United States can do that most other countries can't.

Alex Morgan (second right) celebrates with her teammates after scoring one of her five goals in the USA's record-breaking 13-0 hammering of Thailand. Thailand had no answer for what the No. 1 ranked team in the world brought to the table, and they were a bit fortunate not to lose by more. Making its World Cup debut in 2015 four years ago, Thailand finished third in its group but earned its first win, a 3-2 victory over Ivory Coast. Morgan put her arm around an opponent, who was wiping away tears on the pitch moments after the final whistle.

"They were disappointed of course, they meant to make an impression in this first match and they were disappointed", coach Nuengrutai Srathongvian said through a translator. Host France opened the World Cup before a sellout crowd in Paris on Friday night with a 4-0 victory over South Korea. "Yes they are athletes and they will be resilient".

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