United States 13 – 0 Thailand

The U.S. are the clear favorite to win. With five wins and two draws, they have never lost an opening match in the history of the tournament. The only prior time these two teams met resulted in a resounding 9-0 victory for the United States.

Match recap

To call this match a rout is an understatement. Continuing their opening match undefeated streak, the number one ranked United States barely gave the No. 34 ranked Thailand a change.

The United States' 13 goals is the most-ever scored in a World Cup match. Alex Morgan's five goals ties the single-game record in a Women's World Cup match held by Michelle Akers (USA).
