Alex Morgan goes Steph Curry with goal celebration

Alex Morgan goes Steph Curry with goal celebration

The flick of a head. After a quick turn just outside the box, Lavelle hit a left footed rocket the keeper just barely got fingertips on, but couldn't block or redirect.

They came out and dominated Thailand in a legitimately historic fashion.

LATE OPENERS: In addition to the matches between the USA and Thailand in Reims, and Sweden and Chile in Rennes, New Zealand opens with the Netherlands in Le Havre. Then two. Then three. The Americans led 3-0 at the break and then broke the match open in the second half, with the players celebrating goal after goal.

Megan Rapinoe of United States of America celebrates her goal with her teammates.

This is what expanded opportunity looks like. The US team was very good.

Thailand, ranked No. 34 in the world, was clearly outmatched even though the team has shown progress on the world stage. With one exception. The International Blind Sports Federation, which helps visually-impaired athletes compete in the Para-Olympics and other tournaments, requires that any time during a soccer game that one team has scored ten more goals than the other team that game is deemed completed. A World Cup-record seven USA players scored in the game.

Alex Morgan scored five times as U.S. began their Women's World Cup campaign with a record 13-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday.

Star striker Alex Morgan herself scored five goals en route to the 13-0 win.

"They're the reigning champions for a reason", said Nild, whose parents and "an insane amount" of friends and relatives had traveled from California for the match.

"I was hoping we'd beat Germany!" Now, Morgan has eight career World Cup goals.

A quick round of three goals for the U.S. came shortly after after Mewis' goal. The USWNT actually scored 13 goals in just one game.

"We got a lot of attacks and I think that we were really clinical in the number of attacks that we did get".

"For these 24 teams it's a great opportunity for women to showcase what they've worked their entire life towards", she said. "It was an explosion of joy", she said.

"They're the No.1 team in the world and for me, I'm disgusted, honestly", she said. Daisy Cleverley, a junior midfielder for the Golden Bears, also is making her second World Cup appearance for the Ferns.

The Winner and runner-up from each of the six groups automatically advance to the knockout stage round of 16. Its downfall was goal differential, falling to Germany and Norway, each 4-0. "They're the No. 1 team in the world".

The 2019 Women's World Cup final is slated for July 7.

The USA's fast pace wore down Thailand's defense and the Thai national team simply couldn't keep up. And this isn't rec league soccer.

Tuesday's score was the biggest blowout in the tournament's history, with Alex Morgan scoring five goals in a dominating win for the Americans.

Thailand wasn't expected to fare well.

Fox News Flash top headlines for June 11 are here.

Thailand's manager Nuengrutai Srathongvian did not believe the team's opponents were morally wrong to continue to press for goals until the end.

No amount of speed could help Thailand's overwhelmed, 5-foot-5, 31-year-old goalkeeper against the American's offensive barrage.

The record-setting night ended at 13-0. And I think that to be respectful to opponents is to play hard against opponents. "I don't feel it's my job to harness my players and rein them in". I mean, I'm going to celebrate Mal Pugh's goal.
