Soccer star receives death threats over 'disgusting' moment at Women's World Cup

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

I watched the whole game, and I didn't see any celebration that was outside the scope of what we call normal.

But the Americans' wild goal celebrations in such a one-sided game were not to everyone's taste. If the best men's team from Europe or South America played the worst team from Asia or North America, one would expect a 4-6 goal margin of victory.

Fellow TSN analyst Clare Rustad, a former global with 45 Canada caps, and veteran Canadian midfielder Diana Matheson, who is missing the tournament through injury, also criticized the American behaviour while noting the importance of goal differential. (Robert Cianflone/Getty Images) United States' forward Megan Rapinoe celebrate after winning the France 2019 Women's World Cup Group F football match between US and Thailand, on June 11, 2019. To take the most egregious example, in 40 years of watching men's soccer, I can't recall any celebration of a late goal in a rout that compares with Megan Rapinoe's over-the-top celebration of goal number nine, which you can watch here. "For us, the players are excited and I said afterward when you go into a World Cup you can talk tactics, but it's about mentality, it is also about confidence, and so getting off on the right foot is important".

"I respect Thailand, I spoke to some of them afterwards and they should keep their heads up". I said the exact opposite.

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

Hence, mismatches like the U.S. -Thailand farce.

"This got humiliating at some point".

TSN World Cup analyst and former Canadian national player Kaylyn Kyle tweeted Wednesday.

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", the scorer of a record 184 worldwide goals tweeted to her 679,000 followers.

Jill Ellis, who coached the USNWT to win the World Cup in 2015, believes the team was respectful toward Thailand. Imagine it being you out there.

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.

"You want the Americans to impose the slaughter rule or patronize their opponents by pretending they didn't just tack another goal onto the scoreline?" "Women deserve equal pay for equal (or better!) work in offices, factories, AND on the soccer field".

"The U.S. team is not here to be anybody's friend".
