I think the USWNT can, and probably will beat Sweden, but Sweden has won the World Cup and is one of top teams in the world. It could well be a draw. You want the goal differential advantage so you have the easier path to the Championship. You don’t work for 4 years and leave things to chance. If you can score you score.

The ranking of teams in the group stage is determined as follows:

Points obtained in all group matches (three points for a win, one for a draw, none for a defeat); 

Goal difference in all group matches; 

Number of goals scored in all group matches

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Credit to the US but it’s not good to see scores like this in the finals of a major tournament.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Go USA! I doubt they'd score so many points if it didn't matter in the group standings.

Hoping every individual and every team has their best games ever! We like to see people playing their best, regardless of who wins. Make us proud ladies!

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

Go US! Loved the game, girls were great as usual.

Probably?

but Sweden has won the World Cup and is one of top teams in the world.

Hmmmm....

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Something wrong with the scoreline when its 13-0 indicates that Thailand should never have been in the competition.

6 ( +6 / -0 )

the American players who scored the last few goals we’re celebrating like they just scored the winning goal in the final.

the 1st, 2nd & 3rd foals I can understand, but the 11th, 12th & 13th goals - really !?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Let's not forget the Germans put 7 past Brazil (on home soil) in a wc sf.

Just hope it's a one off thing (13 tthough! Any gk howlers?)

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Scoring more goals is fine since goal difference is a group stage tiebreaker

(It'd be disrespectful for a team that makes the World Cup to be treated with a mercy rule)

Goal celebrations when it reached double-digits should be toned down

1 ( +1 / -0 )

It's sad to see and soul destroying for the losing team but it's the duty of every player to score goals until the final whistle is blown.

Long before then. Goldorak mentioned Germany thrashing Brazil in the men’s game and they toned it down for the last few of the 7.

It’s a bit of professional courtesy. It’s not as if there is any needle between the US and Thailand as far as I’m aware of.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Long before then. Goldorak mentioned Germany thrashing Brazil in the men’s game and they toned it down for the last few of the 7.

I seem to remember an interview with one of the German players who said that Jorgi Löw told them to take it easy in the second half to spare the Brazilians further humiliation. They could easily have scored 13 as well.

Alex Morgan seemed to lose track of how many goals she'd scored at one point. I'm sure she was counting them on her fingers.

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Terrible sportsmanship on the part of the American women’s team. How much joy can these women get out of humiliating their opponents? It was a classless spectacle.

It's sad to see and soul destroying for the losing team but it's the duty of every player to score goals until the final whistle is blown.

Scoring excessive goals when the game is way out of reach - maybe I can go for that given the goal differential tie breaker rule. Celebrating like you just won the championship after the 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th goals is rubbing it in your opponents faces. It shows a serious lack of respect for your opponents and an egotistical self regard. Embarrassing for all Americans to be associated with such a display.
