Women's World Cup: How to Watch USWNT Vs Chile Live Stream, TV Channel, Odds

The United States women's national team (USNWT) got their World Cup campaign off to a historic start, but their performance attracted almost more criticism than plaudits.

The defending champions thrashed Thailand 13-0 in their opening game of the campaign, the largest margin of victory in the history of either the men's or women's World Cup.

Up 3-0 at halftime, Team USA scored 10 second-half goals. While the barrage of goals was met by the usual debate over what constitutes sportsmanship, it was the players' reaction to each goal that was vehemently criticized.

"It's absolutely unacceptable in the women's game and in the men's game," ESPN pundit Steve Nicol said of the celebrations.

"It's so disrespectful."

Nicol was just one of the pundits who suggested USWNT got too carried away.

The players, predictably, held a different view. Alex Morgan, who scored four goals, explained that the team deliberately tried to improve its goal difference, which is the first tiebreaker in the group stage.

"When you're playing in a World Cup, every single goal may count at the end of the day," she told Sports Illustrated.

"That's what we were told before the game, and that's why we had to keep going."

Megan Rapinoe, who was also on the scoresheet, echoed her teammate's thoughts.

"If anyone wants to come at our team for not doing the right thing, not playing the right way, not being the right ambassador for the sport, they can come at us because I think our only crime was an explosion of joy," she was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.

Next up for USWNT is Chile, who lost its opening game 2-0 to Sweden but had managed to hold the Scandinavians to a stalemate draw until the 83rd minute.

Ranked 39th in the world, five positions below Thailand, the South Americans are unlikely to prevent USWNT from making it two wins in two this weekend.
