American women's team was criticized after the 13-0 Thailand World Cup box – RT Sport News



US women's team set the record world for the World Cup when they wiped out Thailand 13-0 in their opening game in Reims, but thanks to their performance, the team also met criticism of their parties.

Striker Alex Morgan bagged five goals that the US did incredibly 10 times in the second half at Stade Auguste-Delaune to record the biggest winning margin at a FIFA World Cup, men or women.

However, as the plaudits poured in for a star shield from the defending masters, some observers took problems with American players continuing to celebrate unspeakably as they racked up double figures against the unfortunate Thai people. United Canadian International Clare Rustad noticed the continuing celebration as "1

9459005]" completely unnecessary " and said they showed a lack of" grace " against their opponents. 19659003] "I just think they could have won with some humility and grace, and they just couldn't do it." Rustad said on TSN .

"Celebrate goals later in the game so this is just totally unnecessary. What is this?"

Striker Morgan was seen counting his goal on her fingers while the American players continued to massage in a gratifying huddle even when the score went beyond 10-0.

Former Canadian international Kaylyn Kyle, who won more than 100 caps for his country, beat the scenes as "disgusting".

"They are team no. 1 in the world and for me I am disgusted, honestly.

" You go up against a team that is the first time in the World Cup, they are just happy to be there. Celebrate, I understand, like a Mallory Pugh [who scored on her World Cup debut].

"But these people count their goals, this … I'm embarrassed. I was a female professional athlete, it's kids watching this and being celebrated when it's eight, nine , 10.

"I said in the pre-game, yes, you want to make many goals, yes, you want to make your mark because of the goal difference. But there is a way to do it, and that is not the way for me. "

These comments received some support online, as others shouted the US team to fail to call down their celebrations even though the opposition was long beaten

However, the US players were uncomfortable, but with five goal stars Morgan said: "With scoreline tonight, we must look at the group phase when each goal counts.

"It was important for us to continue walking. We knew that every goal could mean."

US Legend Abby Wambach also supported the team, tweeting it "for some players, this is the first world cup, and they should be happy.

[1 9459004]" Imagine that you are out there. This is your dream of playing and then scoring in a world cup. Celebrate. Would you tell a crew to not make any points or celebrate? "

Wambach's attempt to include men's games in the discussion was rejected by some, as they felt that male players – like French star Paul Pogba – would have been called if they continued to celebrate when the score was double digits .

Next up to the US is on Sunday Chile, which lost its first match 2-0 against Sweden.

Unfortunately, the Chileans ranked five places under Thailand in the FIFA women's rankings.
