The victory over Chile was more subdued than the us team's record-breaking rout of Thailand.

As the Americans head into their final group stage game on Thursday against rival Sweden, it does so sitting atop Group F with six points and a goal differential edge of +10, meaning a draw will be sufficient in order to finish in first place. Alex Morgan led the way with a record-tying five goals.

The United States women's soccer team can't maintain their current standard, can they?

The winning margin might not have been near to their record-breaking 13-0 hammering of Thailand in their opening Group F game, but this was still an extremely one-sided victory for the holders in Paris.

So about Carli Lloyd.

Lloyd is the first player in Women's World Cup history to score at least one goal in six straight tournament games.

She added another on a header off a corner in the 35th for her 10th career World Cup goal, which moved her into third on the all-time US list behind Abby Wambach (14) and Michelle Akers (12).

The USWNT is seeking its fourth World Cup title (1991, 1999, 2015).

FOX will broadcast US versus Chile in English, and Telemundo will do so in Spanish in the United States.

Lloyd had a chance to complete her hat trick in the second half when a VAR review led to the Americans being awarded a spot kick, but she put her penalty kick wide.

Despite her age, she certainly proved she can make an impact on the World Cup stage in Sunday's game against Chile.

The USA spent nearly the entire game playing in Chile's half and hit the woodwork twice through Lloyd and once through substitute Jessica McDonald's long-range effort, as they again impressed with a confident display of classy football. Only so many players can start, Lloyd knows that. Maybe she gave Ellis something more to think about with her play on Sunday.

Tierna Davidson may be young, but she's powerful. Carli Lloyd got the scoring started early with a attractive left-footed strike from the top of the penalty area in the 11th minute.

USA soccer maintains that the two teams have different pay structures because of separate collective bargaining agreements.

Now she has the first against Chile, followed by a hilarious troll of the people who complained about all that celebrating earlier in the week.

Early in the first half, Chile almost equalized after Lloyd's first goal on a well-designed set piece. Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath also spent the game on the bench with Christine Press and Mallory Pugh in their place, while Becky Sauerbrunn returned after missing the first game due to injury, shifting Julie Ertz back into the midfield. The second goal got past the 6-footer in stoppage time.

The 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup runs until July 7. "I'm a fighter and I'll fight to the end", she said before the tournament began. Naeher is focused and doesn't listen to the outside noise. "After each shot she stopped, the stadium filled with exasperated cries from USA fans".
