    I can get not wanting to see this individual game, but I mean. This will be the only USA game that gets THAT out of hand. We should handle Chile pretty easily too, but not by double digits. We'll be favored against Sweden but on a bad day they're capable of beating us. Then things will only get tougher in knockout.

    I didn’t get to watch the game but expected quite a few stunning goals. All were great shots, but they were also often barely contested by defense or goalie. Holy lopsided.

    Yeah, didn't get to watch the game. Looks like I didn't miss much. Seems like the rest of the tournament has been pretty good though.

    Anybody complaining about the score has never played sports at a competitive level.

    You work your ass off to get to that level and the peak of your sport then are supposed to dial it back?

    They don’t give out participation trophies in the World Cup. Nor would any competitor in the World Cup want one

    I don't mind scoring the goals. Might need the goal differential because Sweden could just easily put up a big number on Thailand as well.

    What I do have a problem with is the over celebration of them once you're up like 8-0 or something. Like if its your first WC goal, sure, go nuts. But people like Morgan, Rapinoe, etc needed to tone it down later in the game. That was being disrespectful. You know Thailand sucks. You've scored plenty before in your careers. Settle down some. It's not egregious, but its on the disrespectful scale.

    I agree. I don't care if the game is 20-0, but they're running around like jackasses at 9-0. I get it if it's your first WC goal, but Rapinoe scoring going to the ground to do whatever dumb celebration she did was unnecessary.

    Oh, and this take is why I hate the USWNT. It's not the 1960's anymore, Abby. No one cares it's bc you're a broad.

    Uhhh.... Yeah, Abs. It happens all the time there is a notable excessive blowout. I'm sure if the Dream Team was going around smacking their chest after every dunk while up by 30 points, there'd be criticism.

    Yeah. I made such a comment here first. And I made it without watching the game live. My concern was with exertion and possible injury, not mercy.

    But after seeing the highlights....what exertion?

    They were in a Catch-22, keep playing as normal and they get called unsportsmanlike for running up the score, start sandbagging and just passing the ball around to kill time and they get called unsportsmanlike for disrespecting the game or their opponents.


    Thailand never should have been there, this is what happens when you water down the competition, if they continue to expand the Mens World Cup, don't be surprised to see similar results.

    Well said. I think I just saw where they won’t expand the Men’s side soon. Good.

    I think the one thing that sticks with most at this point was all the celebrating after pouring on another goal. I just think there has to be a Thai player that would say if their team was in that exact position they would absolutely celebrate too. It’s the fucking World Cup!

    Yeah, playing keep-away and backpassing for a half hour would've been embarrassing in its own right. There's no real option to keep everyone happy. F it, just keep playing?

    Qatar going to be the Thailand in 2022? Also, a game simultaneously yesterday was Germany vs Estonia for Euro 2020. That went 8-0 and Werner and Sane barely celebrated goals 7 and 8. Werner especially, no reaction at all. They kept scoring but kept it low key.

    The seeding in Women's World Cup sucks also. Using old FIFA rankings which means France vs USA in quarterfinals very likely. USA could very well be out in the quarterfinals. The rest of the world might be celebrating then. Just saying....

    You score in a World Cup match (which you've been working your entire life to get to) you're going to celebrate

    Well Thailand's defense was no where to be found so it was exceptionally easy to score
