USA Women 13 - 0 Thailand Women | 11 Jun 2019

Alex Morgan and the USWNT open the Women's World Cup against Thailand

On the Women's World Cup Twitter account on May 7, Federation Internationale de Football Association wrote that "You can still buy tickets for a few matches" - despite it now being apparent more than 70 per cent of games were not at capacity.

The Americans poured on the goals and defeated Thailand 13-0 - the biggest blowout in the tournament's history.

Rose Lavelle and Sam Mewis each scored twice.

A trio of Americans swarmed Thailand keeper Sukanya Chor Charoenying, and a moment later, Alex Morgan scored a goal with her head.

European champions the Netherlands began their campaign with a 1-0 win over New Zealand in Le Havre.

An offside decision cost Morgan a fifth-minute opener but the prolific forward would not be denied, nodding in Kelley O'Hara's dinked cross with aplomb to open the scoring.

Fifth minute, 0-0: US thought it had scored after Alex Morgan tapped in Lindsey Horan's header, but the referee's assistant ruled her offside and disallowed the goal.

"Every goal matters in this tournament", Morgan told Fox Sports after the final whistle. Chile fell to Sweden, 2-0, to open group play on Tuesday and is 0-3-2 in its last five outings. In those three defeats, they have failed to score a single goal while conceding 21.

Sarina Wiegma's side left it late with Jill Roord, who has joined Women's Super League champions Arsenal from Bayern Munich, scoring in the 92nd minute to seal a dramatic victory.

Since the start of 2018, Alex Morgan has scored 26 goals for USA Women in all competitions, at least 13 more than any other player. Only Mia Hamm (276), Christie Rampone (311) and Kristine Lilly (354) have earned more.

The team is now tied with Sweden in Group F. The top two teams in the group move to the knockout stage.
