U.S. breaks records in opening Women's World Cup game, dominates Thailand 13-0

Record-setting win for the USWNT

The U.S. Women's National team are the defending champions and the favorite to win the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup. But no one predicted them setting a World Cup records Tuesday in their 13-0 routing of Thailand to open their title defense.

You've already heard it called a record-breaking win. But which records did they break?

The previous record for most goals scored by a team was set by the Germany women's national football team Women's during the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup. In group stage match, Germany beat Argentina by a 11-0 scoreline. The record nine-goal margin of victory in that match was also put to rest by the U.S. Women's 13-goal conquest Tuesday.

Team captain Alex Morgan scored five goals for the U.S., tying the most goals scored by a single player in a FIFA Women's World Cup match. She now shares the record with Michelle Akers who scored five goals as a member of the U.S. Women's National Team in the 1991 quarterfinal match against Chinese Taipei.

More in 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup

Seven different women scored for the U.S.: Alex Morgan, Rose Lavelle, Linsey Horan, Sam Mewis, Megan Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and Carli Lloyd. That sets a new record for most individual goal scorers from a team in a Women's World Cup match. Only five of the Germen players scored goals in their 2007 match versus Argentina.

Here's the list of all the goals scored by the U.S.:

USWNT vs. Thailand highlights and recap

The U.S. came out of the gate strong, dominating possession and keeping the ball in Thailand's half of the field. They found the back of the net in the fifth minute on their third shot. But after VAR (video assistant referee) review, the goal was called back because a U.S. player was in an offside position.

Morgan corrected that in the 12th minute, putting away her first of the night. Kelly O'Hara played a perfect ball over the top of the defenders from the right side of the penalty area and Morgan headed it past the Thai keeper effortlessly.

By the end of the first half, the U.S. had taken a 3-0 lead. No one could have predicted they would score 10 more in the second half.
