U.S. opens World Cup with record-breaking 13-0 rout of Thailand

Tobin Heath

"It is a tournament and goal difference matters so at the end of the day, you can't feel bad for scoring as many goals as possible in whatever game you're playing", US right back Kelley O'Hara said.

Sam Mewis, who scored two goals on the night, was asked if she felt sorry for Thailand. The match was over after just 12 minutes in thanks to the onslaught of goals, as Jill Ellis' team sent the rest of the world a message in their opening match of the group stage. As in 9-0 in favor of the United States. Since earning a spot on the USA national team in 2010, Morgan has emerged as the face of the USWNT.

The 13 goals surpassed the record set by Germany during the 2007 World Cup, when they beat Argentina 11-0. "Every goal matters in this tournament and that's what we were working on".

When the Americans headed for the interval 3-0 up, there was little indication of what was to come in the second half. On Tuesday night, in front of a pro-American crowd of 18,591, the USA won 13-0 against Thailand.

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

Five Takes From the USWNT's Record-Breaking Win Over Thailand
A dominating 13-0 win over anyone is great, especially for an opening match and especially when mostly everything was clicking. The United States' 13-0 win over Thailand is the largest margin of victory in either the men's or women's World Cup .

To recap: Morgan scored five of the Americans' 13 goals.

Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favorites, 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. Her next three goals came in the 74th, 79th and 87th.

The team is now tied with Sweden in Group F. The top two teams in the group move to the knockout stage.

Lloyd also tied Birgit Prinz's record for longest goal-scoring streak in the Women's World Cup. France and Germany could present a challenge for the US down the stretch, but based on Morgan's ability to attack and find the back of the net, it's not likely they will present much of a challenge. The U.S. held possession for 75% of the match, while Thailand had control only 25% of the time, forcing the Thai national team to defend for much of the game.

"When you get a deluge of goals like that, it's a good feeling". Afterward, former US goalkeeper Hope Solo called Sweden "cowards" for bunkering on defense.
