Thailand was not a World Cup 2019 favorite, but holy smokes did they get steamrolled this afternoon by the United States.
Our ladies set a tournament record by scoring 13 goals in their opener, a game that was pretty much over after five minutes of play.
Here’s the list of goal scorers:
- Alex Morgan (12′, 53′, 74′, 81′, 87′)
- Rose Lavelle (20′, 56′)
- Lindsey Horan (32′)
- Sam Mewis (50′, 54′)
- Megan Rapinoe (79′)
- Mallory Pugh (84′)
- Delran, New Jersey’s Carli Lloyd (90+2′)
Team USA took 39 shots and put 20 on goal while Thailand mustered two. Ten of the U.S. goals came in the 2nd half alone.
It appears as though the U.S. women are not messing around. They are looking to become world champions…
….world fucking champions.
