USA stun Thais with 13 goals

Madelen Janogy Sweden celebrate

"When you go into a three-game mini-tournament you can't get beyond the first game", said U.S. coach Ellis. At the previous finals in Canada in 2015, they defeated Japan 5-2 in a high-octane finale. This game likely won't be hard, so coach Jill Ellis might start some of her backups and keep key players benched. It's the World Cup folks.

A large American presence in Reims ensured that the match was one of 13 confirmed sell-outs in the competition, Federation Internationale de Football Association revealed on Tuesday as they said that more than a million tickets had now been sold for the tournament. The 2015 Women's World Cup final between the USA and Japan became the most-watched soccer match in USA history, per US Soccer.In a more cultural show of their growing profile, Morgan scored a cover on this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, while Rapinoe, Abby Dahlkemper and Crystal Dunn were also photographed in the issue.

Conditions were far from ideal in Rennes for Chile's clash with Sweden due to the torrential conditions in an encounter the Scandinavians went on to win 2-0.

After torrential rain broke out midway through the second half, which was followed by flashes of lightning, Mexican referee Lucila Venegas made a decision to take the players off for their own safety.

Play resumed following a break of around 40 minutes, and Kosovare Asllani fired into the roof of the net to give Sweden the lead in the 83rd minute.

Madelen Janogy came in off the bench and added a goal in stoppage time for the Swedes, who are ranked No. 9 in the world.

Barbara Bonansea: Italy striker sinks Matildas with late-gasp victor
However, Bonansea's performance may realign the expectations for how far this Italian group can go in the tournament. Australian defender Clare Polkinghorne attempted to bring in a pass during the sequence, but took a bad touch.

"The interruption definitely upset us".

The record-setting night ended at 13-0.

Meanwhile, European champions the Netherlands also got off to a winning start, but left it very late to beat New Zealand in Le Havre.

The Netherlands opened their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 victory over New Zealand on Tuesday.

Roord was stationed near the post as the ball came her way. The group said "U.S. Soccer's challenged pay practices are not based on sex" and that pay differences were based on "differences in the aggregate revenue generated by the different teams" as well as other factors, according to their response."We look forward to a trial next year after the World Cup", the players said in a statement after the USSF's response was filed.

"Anyone who has broken a toe knows how much it hurts", said Voss-Tecklenburg, who described the 27 year-old as "irreplaceable".
