The Americans held a 3-0 lead at halftime and scored an absurd 10 goals in the second half.

The women's national team won the last World Cup in 2015, and they're looking to defend their title at this year's tournament, which will crown its victor on July 7. This is the first time the USA has scored more than one goal in the first half of a Women's World Cup group game since the 2003 edition, when the Americans played on home soil.

While the match turned into a blowout, Thailand still deserves some credit for playing hard the whole time and trying to stop the U.S. They easily could have given up when the Americans were up 10-0, but Thailand still made some big stops and saves in the final minutes. However, Morgan was ruled offside, and the goal was taken off the board. "Celebrating goals later in the game like this is just completely unnecessary. It's a tournament where goal differential is important", Ellis said.

World Cup favourite the United States of America has thrashed Thailand 13-0 to lay a marker down to the rest of the competition in its opening match in Riems, north-east France. Host France opened the World Cup before a sellout crowd in Paris on Friday night with a 4-0 victory over South Korea.

The USWNT is seeking its fourth World Cup title (1991, 1999, 2015).

At the final whistle, Lloyd and Christen Press were seen consoling the Thailand goalkeeper. But we believe we have got more to do. "Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?", tweeted Abby Wambach, a former teammate of Morgan's who was on the 2015 USA women's World Cup championship squad. "Yes they are athletes and they will be resilient".

"They're the No.1 team in the world and for me, I'm disgusted, honestly", she said.

It came close to the team's biggest rout ever.

It may not have been a ideal match as several of the players were still finding their groove on the worldwide stage, but the win gave the USA some comfort and confidence heading into their next game against Chile on Sunday.

The United States, who are the defending champions, will face Thailand to finish out Day 5 and the first round of group matches. Afterward, former US goalkeeper Hope Solo called Sweden "cowards" for bunkering on defense. Afterward, former United States goalkeeper Hole Solo called Sweden "cowards" for bunkering on defense.

Sweden, who defeated Chile 2-0 earlier on Tuesday in Rennes, ousted the U.S.in the teams last meeting in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
