USWNT wins most lopsided game in World Cup history

U.S. forward Alex Morgan dribbles the ball at Red Bull Arena as the US Women's National Soccer team plays Mexico in a warm up game for the World Cup on Sunday

The 2019 Women's World Cup final is slated for July 7.

The 13-0 victory is the largest margin of victory in the history of the FIFA World Cup - both men's and women's. Good enough to cover the spread ... of an American football game.

Most goals by a team in one game: 13 This record previously belonged to Germany, which blew out Argentina, 11-0, in 2007. As in 9-0 in favor of the United States.

There was no other way to describe the US defeating Thailand on Tuesday night to kick off their Women's World Cup title defense. The American's lone legitimate challenge come on June 20th against Sweden, in a match that should determine who takes first place out of the group.

It doesn't matter if they're coming off of the bench or in the starting XI, everyone on this roster can score.

Eight minutes later Rose Lavelle found the net with a left-footed shot while midfielder Lindsey Horan gave them a 3-0 lead going into the interval.

Mewis started things, getting the goal her terrific performance deserved with a deflected effort, before Morgan prodded home the fifth at the far post. Alex Morgan scored a record-tying five goals and 21-year-old Mallory Pugh scored off of the bench in her Women's World Cup debut.

If Tuesday is any indication, the United States appears to be well on its way to a second straight World Cup title and the team could very well set more tournament records along the way. Thailand goalkeeper Sukanya Chor Charoenying had seven saves as well. The squad only allowed two shots on goals as the Thai offense was nearly nonexistent throughout the entire match. It's safe to say that she'll be fresh and ready for the USWNT's next match against Chile on Sunday.
