USWNT 13-0 Thailand

Alex Morgan celebrates her fifth goal vs Thailand USA's 12th

Morgan opened the goal spree for the title favourites, who are in pursuit of a fourth world crown, with a header in the 12th minute and from then on there was no stopping the champions. Carli Lloyd capped off the night with the final goal in injury time, a three-minute period that must have felt like three hours for the Thailand players. Switzerland beat Ecuador 10-1 in 2015 and there was Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007.

It is the most goals scored and the most lopsided victory in World Cup history, according to Fox Sports' Rob Stone. Seven different players (Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle, Lindsey Horan, Sam Mewis, Megan Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and Carly Lloyd) scored a goal and Morgan, the team's star striker, found the back of the net five times.

For what it's worth, the United States has lost just once in the group stages of the Women's World Cup and Thailand really has no business being in the tournament.

Ninth minute, 0-0: The U.S. has controlled possession and applied pressure throughout the opening phase of the game and registered three shots on goal in the first five minutes.

Elsewhere, Sweden overcame hard conditions to beat a stubborn Chile side 2-0 in their opening game in Group F in Rennes. She now ties with Michelle Akers' previous World Cup record set in 1991. The United States and Thailand are in Group F alongside Sweden and Chile.

The USWNT is the favorite to repeat as Women's World Cup champions, but that doesn't mean they're taking this tournament for granted as the defending champions.

Jill Ellis' side will then be up against Sweden in Le Havre in 20 June, in a game that is likely to decide which side tops the group.
