Megan Rapinoe, USWNT Unapologetic Amid Criticism of Thailand Blowout

England v Scotland

During England's win over Scotland in Nice no fans were in the top tier

That's more goals than the USA men's team scored in its last 11 World Cup games.

Former American global Taylor Twellman, however, criticised the team on social media, believing the side's goal celebrations in Reims were excessive.

Another view was that they should perhaps tone down the celebrations once they were sure they had won the match.

Jill Ellis' side started the game in full on attack mode, and it didn't take long to create a goal.

U.S. women thrashed Thailand by 13 goals as Alex Morgan and Co run riot to set new World Cup record.

When asked in her post-match press conference about the scoreline reaching "embarrassing levels", Ellis, whose side scored 10 times in the second half, said: "This is a world championship so every team here has been fantastic to get to this point". For a handful of players, not only was it their first World Cup goal, but their first World Cup match.

"I respect Thailand, I celebrate that they are here". But these people counting their goals, this ...

Goal difference may be important in deciding who wins the group, with the United States of America facing Chile next before taking on Sweden, the team who defeated them in the quarter-finals of the Rio Olympics in 2016. "But there's a way to do it, and that is not the way for me".

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", 2015 World Cup victor Wambach wrote via Twitter.

"Imagine it being you out there", she added.

The openly lesbian midfielder stood still while her teammates sang ahead of a match in the Women's World Cup.

Is it Ok to celebrate scoring no matter what, or do you think being a good sport should come first?

While Wambach asked the USWNT to continue to do its best to find more goals, she called on Federation Internationale de Football Association to give more resources to countries that need it.

"We really just came into the game really wanting to showcase ourselves", Morgan said. This is a call to @FIFAcom to do more and give more resources for some of these countries.

But that doesn't mean that Thailand shouldn't have been at the World Cup. When you get into the particulars: Are the men and women really bringing in equal amounts of revenue? They were world class. Later, in high school, "she was a three-time all-league pick and was named All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)", according to her Wikipedia page. Stop judging these women with patriarchal glasses. The team is 7-1-2 overall this year, with six straight wins going into the FWWC, and their seven different scorers against Thailand set a record for most in a FWWC game.
