Diana Matheson, who is missing the World Cup through injury, took a shot at the USWNT and in particular the team's head coach on Canadian television network TSN following the game. There was no easing off, no mercy, it was a rout. 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.

Yet, the reality is all it really did was show how ruthless the team are, not how good.

The U.S. women's national team's 13-goal outburst in their debut match at this year's World Cup was the most ever scored in a single game at the worldwide tournament. Alex Morgan tied a national record with five goals in the match. "You're going up against a team that's their first time in the World Cup". This did not sit well with former Canada star Kaylyn Kyle, who compared Morgan to an all-time great Canadian striker. Diana Matheson said USA coach Jill Ellis should be embarrassed.

With each of the 24 teams in attendance having played one group game, Day 6 of the Women's World Cup will see hosts France try for a second win when they go up against pool rivals Norway, while Germany and Spain are set to collide in what could be a tight clash. Wambach asked whether a men's team would have been criticized in the same way. I love it. But the soccer gods can be cruel and vindictive.

She also questioned whether there was an element of sexism in the criticism.

"Every goal matters when the goal differential is the tiebreaker in group play".

Kyle said later on social media she had received death threats for her comments, but repeated that she felt the Americans´ celebrations were "excessive and disrespectful".

"I found out that we got tickets".

U.S. Soccer officials have disputed allegations of gender-based pay discrimination, as well as the lawsuit's assertions that the women's national team generates more revenue for the federation than the men's team. "This is what they've dreamt about". It's part of growing the game.

The U.S. outshot Thailand 30-2 (21-2 in shots on target) and had 75 percent possession.
