Canadian broadcasters criticize USA women's team for historic World Cup win

France won the opening match of the World Cup 4-0 against South Korea

France won the opening match of the World Cup 4-0 against South Korea

The squad also made history for most goals scored in a single match and largest margin of victory at a men's or women's World Cup. It was one of the biggest blowouts in the tournament's history and made USA tie with Sweden for one win each, although the US led with the most scores.

He was also critical of the US women for showing their hand ahead of games against more formidable opponents.

"I did say I thought it was excessive and disrespectful the goal celebrations of the American team once the score hit 8-0".

It is certainly ominous for the other World Cup winning hopefuls, a statement of intent, in the same way a parading of military hardware is created to unnerve a hostile foe thinking of challenging U.S. interests. Kaylyn Kyle said it was disrespectful.

U.S. Soccer officials have disputed allegations of gender-based pay discrimination, as well as the lawsuit's assertions that the women's national team generates more revenue for the federation than the men's team. I never once said to never score as many goals as you can in a World Cup!

The Allianz Riviera in Nice will host France's second World Cup test against Norway and decide in which order these teams-provided both qualify-will proceed into the last 16. "Celebrating goals later in the game like this is just completely unnecessary", Clare Rustad added.

"This got humiliating at some point".

Hundreds arrested at Moscow protest over Ivan Golunov's arrest
Ivan Golunov was freed on Tuesday following an unprecedented show of media and popular solidarity. "But we came here anyway". OVD-Info, a group which monitors arrests of opposition figures, said: "More than 400 people had been detained at the march".

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour also had no time for the critics. "They'll improve from here", said Rapinoe.

Captain Megan Rapinoe said her team had been overjoyed at setting the record score but insisted they did respect all their opponents.

"A lot of this is about building momentum and so as a coach I don't find it my job to rein my players in", Ellis told The Wall Street Journal. The United States team, for which she plays (obviously), beat Japan at the 2012 Summer Olympics after a grueling tournament.

The Americans play No. 39 Chile in Paris on Sunday.

The Thailand rout set a number of Women's World Cup records.

The U.S. outshot Thailand 30-2 (21-2 in shots on target) and had 75 percent possession.
