USA women's side slammed for too much celebrating in 13-0 rout

World Cup

Another former Canadian global, Clare Rustad, also unleashed on the U.S. team on the TSN coverage. "Celebrating goals later in the game like this is just completely unnecessary", TSN host Clare Rustad said after the thrashing.

When the Americans headed for the interval 3-0 up, there was little indication of what was to come in the second half.

Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favourites, who are in pursuit of a fourth world crown, with a header in the 12th minute and from then on there was no stopping the champions. Akers did so against Chinese Taipei in 1991, 27 years and 199 days ago, per Opta.

Substitute Mallory Pugh then scored to put the US up 11-0 and Morgan added her fifth goal of the night to join compatriot Michelle Akers as the only two women to score five in a single match at the World Cup. If you sign up to a service by clicking one of the links, we may earn a referral fee.

Lloyd, 36, became the oldest American woman to score at a World Cup and joined Germany's Birgit Prinz as the only players to score in five straight World Cup games.

"The bottom line is that this game was not fair or ideal for either team", former USA worldwide Yael Averbuch West wroteon Twitter.

"Both did their best given the situation".

"We really wanted to showcase ourselves and what we've been preparing for and working on and I think we did that", Morgan said. That's were a number of United States football pundits have an issue following America's 13-0 rout over Thailand in their opening game of the Women's World Cup.

The Americans out-shot Thailand 40-2 and had 73 percent of the possession.

Before the USWNT takes on Chile on Sunday, let's take a look at some of the most lopsided games in World Cup history, including a jaw-dropping qualifier bonus.

"I said in the pre-game, yes, you want to score a lot of goals, yes, you want to make your mark because of the goal difference".

2015 Women's World Cup hero Carli Lloyd was a second-half substitute against Thailand.

Morgan and Mewis knocked home the next two, and Lavelle finished the barrage with her second goal in her debut off an assist from Mewis.

It was pretty well known heading into the tournament that Morgan would lead the Americans.

"The ball just bounced my way tonight ..."

Five different US players scored in the rout.
