The U.S. women's national team opened their 2019 World Cup campaign with an absolute route over Thailand, defeating the No. 34 ranked team 13-0.

United States captain Megan Rapinoe said hammering Thailand 13-0 in the Women's World Cup was all "part of growing the game" after a win so lop-sided there were suggestions they should have eased up to save the Thais from embarrassment.

But the Americans caught criticism for piling on and celebrating too hard, including from their rivals north of the border. While so much of the handwringing over the celebrations comes from notions of sportsmanships, there's another reason that the display of power might have been disquieting, and it has nothing to do with whether the women on the U.S side should have run up the score or done coordinated sideline dances after goal number 12, but rather that it illustrates the shocking inequality in women's soccer across the world stage.

He was also critical of the US women for showing their hand ahead of games against more formidable opponents.

The 13-0 win over Thailand was the largest win at a World Cup in Federation Internationale de Football Association history - between both genders.

"If anyone wants to come at our team for not doing the right thing, not playing the right way, not being the right ambassador for the sport, they can come at us", Rapinoe said.

The Americans set another tournament record with four goals in six minutes in the second half.

"A lot of this is about building momentum and so as a coach I don't find it my job to rein my players in".

"For me it's disrespectful, it's disgraceful. This is part of the growth of the game".

US captain Megan Rapinoe garnered plenty of criticism for her extravagant celebration after scoring the ninth goal of the match; she ran towards her team's bench with her arms out like an airplane, spun around, and went to the ground while kicking her feet together in the air. She also included a clarification of her comments.

Among the most notable critics were former Canada national team stars Clare Rustad, Kaylyn Kyle, and Diana Matheson, who tore into the USWNT for celebrating.

She also questioned whether there was an element of sexism in the criticism. Imagine it being you out there. "This is the World Cup, not a rec league tournament", she wrote. "Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?" she tweeted.

"This is a world championship, so every team here has been fantastic to get to this point". "You know what I wanted to do?"

Former U.S. worldwide Alexi Lalas, another member of the panel, however, defended the Americans.

"I also think it was class of them to console the Thailand players after the game".

Seven different players scored for the Americans, tying Germany for the most in a World Cup match.
