Sweden beat Chile 2-0

Sweden's Kosovare Asllani center and Chile's Karen Araya right challenge for the ball during the Women's World Cup Group F soccer match between Chile and Sweden at the Roazhon Park in Rennes France Tuesday

The U.S. are the most successful team in the sport. That would be an increase of over 30 percent from the 2015 women's World Cup, held in Canada.

And of course, there's the indisputable point that World Cup teams are incentivized to score as many goals as possible with goal differential acting as a tiebreaker - though it's an argument that doesn't address the celebrations.

The United States have never failed to make the semi-finals at the World Cup, but their incredible record at the Olympics - four golds and one silver from five appearances - came to an end when they were beaten by Sweden in the quarter-finals in Rio three years ago.

They are therefore comfortable favourites against first Group F opponents Thailand.

"I feel good, I feel confident", starting goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher said. The last time the two teams met, the United States won 9-0.

At an open training session, French children swarmed the USA players for autographs, calling out in thick accents the name of Alex Morgan, the clinical striker whose fearless style has made her one of the biggest names in the sport.

Of course as with most everything involving social media, there were strongly worded takes on the other side, with many questioning if a men's team would receive the same criticism.

For anyone not familiar with Morgan, she graduated early from UC Berkley before being drafted by the Western New York Flash in 2011's Women's Professional Soccer Draft. There remains, though, a jarring gender discrepancy.

Video game producer EA Sports only introduced women's teams to its FIFA Soccer product in 2016, more than a decade after the launch. While the USA women are entering this World Cup as defending champions, the US men did not qualify for last year's FIFA World Cup.The women's team is more successful on the field, and their profile is also growing.

In 2015, the women's team made $2 million after becoming world champions. "But I think the players that we've selected and the preparation has been excellent".
