It's the World Cup folks.

I have no problem with running up the score. "I think it was important for us to celebrate with each other". Make no mistake, the US are the favourites to win a fourth World Cup for a reason, they have the best squad, more depth, more options and in Alex Morgan, arguably the best player at the tournament.

164-cap veteran striker Alex Morgan scored five times, Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis netted twice each while Lindsey Horan, skipper Megan Rapinoe and substitutes Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd also found the net in the lopsided victory. Goal difference is a tie-breaker at the group stage of this tournament, and may end up deciding whether the US wins its group. Alongside Abby Wambach, she appeared on American Idol to announce that the season 14 victor would record the official song for Fox's coverage of the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup. I think it unlikely that those final few goals against hapless Thailand will be needed for the U.S.to finish on top, but you never know.

The absence (or virtual absence) of precedent for Rapinoe's display demolishes Amy Wambach's attempt to defend her former teammate.

"Celebrating goals (like #9) leaves a sour taste in my mouth like many of you".

"Imagine it being you out there", she added.

"We have the utmost respect for everyone we play but it's the World Cup and that's part of it". The lawsuit cited several instances in which pay for USA men's team, which has underperformed in recent years, far exceeded compensation for their counterparts on the women's team, who are the reigning World Cup champions.

Federation Internationale de Football Association says the one million total also includes "delegations of the teams playing, commercial affiliates, observers, medical and technical staff". "I thought it was a bad look for a national team to behave in a way that just - I tried to teach my children, my girls, how to play sports with two words: with class and with sportsmanship".

The Americans did take time to console the Thai players following the game.
