USA Women 13 - 0 Thailand Women | 11 Jun 2019

United States' Carli Lloyd right celebrates with teammates after Lloyd scored her third goal against Japan during the first half of the FIFA Women's World Cup soccer championship in Vancouver British Columbia

4-0, 50 minutes: Samantha Mewis' deflected effort gave her the 800th goal in Women's World Cup history.

Striker Alex Morgan scored five times as holders the United States began their World Cup campaign with a record 13-0 win over Thailand.

Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis each scored twice.

An offside decision cost Morgan a fifth-minute opener but the prolific forward would not be denied, nodding in Kelley O'Hara's dinked cross with aplomb to open the scoring.

"Every goal matters in this tournament", Morgan told Fox Sports after the final whistle.

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

A trio of Americans swarmed Thailand keeper Sukanya Chor Charoenying, and a moment later, Alex Morgan scored a goal with her head.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sweden eventually beat a resilient Chile side 2-0 in the other match in Group F, which the US fully expect to top. Switzerland beat Ecuador 10-1 in 2015 and there was Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007.

Kickoff: The national anthems have played, and United States of America versus Thailand now is underway.

USWNT legend Michelle Akers was the only other player to hit five in one match, doing so during the 1991 competition against Chinese Taipei, but Morgan was not content with just scoring goals.

Samantha Mewis' opening goal for US was the 800th goal scored in Women's World Cup matches, with United States of America responsible for 116 of them - more than any other team.

Lloyd's goal was the final blow in the biggest blowout in Women's World Cup history.

Carli Lloyd earned her 275th cap for the U.S. in their win over Thailand, moving her to fourth on the all-time list. The American's lone legitimate challenge come on June 20th against Sweden, in a match that should determine who takes first place out of the group.

The top two teams in each of the six groups will qualify automatically for the last 16, along with the four best third-placed sides.
