Alex Morgan tied a national record with five goals in the match. Germany's hard-fought 1-0 victory over China wasn't the masterclass some expected, while Spain needed two penalties to beat South Africa 3-1. Or at least its sports broadcasters are.

United States of America coach Jill Ellis hit back at suggestions her players could have eased up and spared 34th-ranked Thailand complete humiliation. This is a team in full attack mode, fighting not just to win a World Cup, but to prove a larger point about their worth.

Fellow TSN analyst Clare Rustad, a former worldwide with 45 Canada caps, and veteran Canadian midfielder Diana Matheson, who is missing the tournament through injury, also criticized the American behaviour while noting the importance of goal differential.

This has rankled with a member of the team's greatest regional rival, Canada.

13-0 isn't a fútbol score, it's a football score. "If US goes on to fail, their behavior will be on a loop", Hall of Famer - and Fox Sports analyst - Alexi Lalas tweeted. "Curious to see if anyone apologizes for this postgame", Twellman tweeted to his 327,000 followers.

However, not everyone viewed the rout in a negative light.

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", the scorer of a record 184 worldwide goals tweeted to her 679,000 followers. "I never once said to never score as many goals as you can in a World Cup!"

U.S. Soccer officials have disputed allegations of gender-based pay discrimination, as well as the lawsuit's assertions that the women's national team generates more revenue for the federation than the men's team.

"Tonight we knew that every goal could matter in these group stage games", Morgan said. Athletes should always play to their skill level.

U.S striker Alex Morgan, who scored five goals in the game, was asked about her team's celebrations in the post-match press conference.

US women's soccer coach Jill Ellis said her players didn't consider pulling back because it would disrespect their opponent. "And I believe they wanted us to play them straight up". "This is what they've dreamt about. For me it´s disrespectful, it´s disgraceful". It's part of growing the game.

"The U.S. team is not here to be anybody's friend".
