Don't let USWNT score fool you, and Thailand has something to celebrate

Don't let USWNT score fool you, and Thailand has something to celebrate

The U.S. will play Sweden on Thursday to determine who will top Group F. Both teams now have six points after two games. This roster features 11 first-time players and 12 who were on the winning team from 2015.

Sunday's match marked Lloyd's 20th World Cup game, making her sixth all-time in World Cup matches for the United States of America, moving her past Christie Pearce and Brianna Scurry. The U.S. had an official total of 26 shots, nine on goal, but the Chile and PSG goalkeeper was an acrobatic hero.

The 29-year-old star is the favorite for the Golden Boot, given to the player who scores the most goals in the World Cup.

In particular, her reactive stop from a sweet Christen Press volley brought a stunned crowd to their feet, with BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce describing it as "one of the best saves at a Women's World Cup".

Lloyd added another Sunday on a header off a corner in the 35th minute for her 10th career World Cup goal, which moved her into third on the all-time USA list behind Abby Wambach (14 goals) and Michelle Akers (12).

There were some questions around Carli Lloyd and how much she has left in the tank as she entered her fourth World Cup at 36 years old - but any concerns should be put to rest after watching her performance against Chile.

Their goal difference is such that a draw when they face the Swedes in Le Havre on Thursday will see them advance in the first place, which increases the chances of a heavyweight quarter-final showdown back in Paris with hosts France.

FOX will broadcast US versus Chile in English, and Telemundo will do so in Spanish in the United States.

Perhaps unsettled by the quality of Endler, Lloyd then sent her penalty wide in the 81st minute after Yessenia Huenteo was adjudged to have pulled back Allie Long in the box following a VAR review. "I'm a fighter and I'll fight to the end", she said before the tournament began. Lloyd exchanged encouraging words and tweets with goalkeeper Sukanya Chor Charoenying, and Federation Internationale de Football Association posted an interview with Thailand's coach thanking the us players for being professional and playing well.

Despite her age, she certainly proved she can make an impact on the World Cup stage in Sunday's game against Chile. This is Chile's first World Cup appearance.

"As we cheer them on in the World Cup, we must support their fight off the field for equal pay".

The U.S. had 15 corner kicks, scoring on two, and will need to keep creating these kinds of opportunities as the tournament gets more competitive.

She became the oldest woman to score a few times in a single World Cup match.

Where: Parc des Princes in Paris, France.
