3 takeaways from USA's record-setting win over Thailand

Alex Morgan plays soccer for the USWNT

Striker Alex Morgan scored five times as holders the United States began their World Cup campaign with a record 13-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday. While the match was never expected to be close, the defending champs showed no mercy in a dominant 13-0 win. Seven different players scored for the U.S., with Morgan's five leading the way.

Not only did they fail to qualify for last year's games, the women scored more goals on Tuesday than the men scored in the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups combined (12).

Veteran Carli Lloyd then added a 13th goal of the night for the U.S.to reach the final scoreline and give the Americans a record for both margin of victory and goals scored, surpassing Germany, who beat Argentina 11-0 in 2007.

Asked about the lopsided score, USA coach Jill Ellis wondered if a 10-0 victory in a men's World Cup would elicit the same questions.

"Honestly, you're going up against a side that is the first time in the World Cup, they're just happy to be there..." 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. Thailand had no answer for what the No. 1 ranked team in the world brought to the table, and they were a bit fortunate not to lose by more.

Morgan, who was seen consoling Nild after the game, was asked what she said to her fellow Golden Bear. Morgan put her arm around an opponent, who was wiping away tears on the pitch moments after the final whistle.

"Obviously we have the utmost respect for everyone we play, but it's the World Cup", said captain Megan Rapinoe. It started with Mewis, who finished a feed from Megan Rapinoe for her first World Cup goal. "We've got two more games to play and we need to bounce back".

Amazon is also offering a special additional discount on purchase of a new iPhone X at the Amazon Fab Phones Fest sale. The original price of the smartphone is Rs 32,999 which means you can grab the phone with a discount of Rs 5,000.

Asked repeatedly about the lopsided score, US coach Jill Ellis wondered if a 10-0 victory in a men's World Cup would elicit the same questions.

"They were disappointed of course, they meant to make an impression in this first match and they were disappointed", coach Nuengrutai Srathongvian said. "Yes, they are all athletes and they will be resilient".

The World Cup comes at a time when female players across the globe are seeking better treatment, conditions and pay.

The team's biggest margin of victory was a 14-0 win over the Dominican Republic in a 2012 Olympic qualifier in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The last time they played, it got ugly.

The U.S. plays Chile on Sunday and then play Sweden next week. For comparison, the USA had 39 attempts.
