Simply referring to the United States as one of the betting favorites to win the 2019 Women's World Cup in France no longer seems to be doing Team USA justice after their first Group Stage result.
USA did more than just annihilate a clearly-overwhelmed Thailand team, 13-0, in Tuesday's Group Stage match. The Americans crushed them by a record-setting margin of victory.
What is the Women's World Cup Record for Biggest Margin of Victory?
Team USA set the record for biggest margin of victory in a single FIFA Women's World Cup match in their 13-0 win over Thailand on Tuesday, June 11. Prior to this result, Germany held the record with an 11-0 win over Argentina in the 2007 Women's World Cup.
What is the Women's World Cup Record for Most Goals Scored?
Team USA set the Women's World Cup records for both most goals scored in a single match by one team and most combined goals scored in one game. USA's 13-0 win over Thailand surpassed Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina from 2007 as the previous record-holder in these two categories as well.
What is Team USA's Biggest Win?
Despite setting the Women's World Cup record for most lopsided win against Thailand, Team USA came just one goal shy of tying the Women's National Team's record for biggest win in club history. The Women's National Team's biggest win was 14-0 against the Dominican Republic in a match played on Jan. 20, 2012
Women's World Cup Record for Most Goals Scored by a Single Player in One Match
Alex Morgan's five goals against Thailand tied the current Women's World Cup record for most goals in one game, which is held by USA's Michelle Akers in a 1991 match against Chinese Taipei.
How Old is Alex Morgan?
Alex Morgan, who plays striker for Team USA, is 29 years old, and she will turn 30 years old during the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup on July 2, 2019.
When is Team USA's Next World Cup Match?
After defeating Thailand on Tuesday, Team USA's next match is against Chile on Sunday, June 16 at 12 p.m. EST. Team USA's full World Cup schedule for Group Stage play can also be found here.
