All three of those women are former Canadian soccer players now working for The Sports Network, and each was not happy with the reaction of the USA women's soccer team during its 13-0 win over Thailand in the World Cup in France. You score as many as you can and don't take the foot off the gas pedal!

Alex Morgan scored five times as United States of America recorded the biggest win in Women's World Cup history in Reims on Tuesday, but the manner of their one-sided victory drew flak on social media, with American players criticised for over-celebrating their rampant humiliation of inferior opposition.

Social media trolls targeted former Canadian worldwide Kaylyn Kyle with death threats after she criticized the excessive celebrations by the United States during Tuesday's record-breaking win over Thailand in the Women's World Cup.

Former American global Taylor Twellman, however, criticised the team on social media, believing the side's goal celebrations in Reims were excessive. "To be respectful to opponents is to play hard against opponents", Ellis said. "It's a tournament where goal differential is a criteria".

Rapinoe, who celebrated her team's ninth goal by sliding to the ground before leaping into the arms of the USA substitutes on the sidelines, told Fox Sports she understood the criticism "in part", but defended her team mates. "For me it's disrespectful, it's disgraceful", Kyle, who retired in 2017 after winning 101 caps, said on air. It's part of growing the game.

"For all that have issue with many goals: for some players this is there first World Cup goal, and they should be excited", the scorer of a record 184 global goals tweeted to her 679,000 followers.

Many Twitter users also criticised the show of joy with the hashtag "UglyAmericans".

The United States is also pressuring Turkey and other nations to isolate Iran, including blocking oil exports. Regardless of the US warnings, Turkey appeared to be moving ahead with the S-400 purchase.

Co-Captain Alex Morgan told ESPN that "you can never have everyone love you", when asked about some of the critical comments leveled at her team for the on-field celebrations and the 13-0 drubbing. Imagine it being you out there. "This is the World Cup, not a rec league tournament", she wrote. And the multi-goal performances by Morgan, Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis marked the first time a team has had three different players score multiple goals in one match at the tournament.

Rob Stone, meanwhile, the host of the Fox Sports World Cup coverage on American television, sided with Twellman.

"This is a world championship so every team that is here has been fantastic to get to this point. It just became an exercise in target practice", he said. "Pull it back, knock it around".

Former U.S. men's global Taylor Twellman, meanwhile, voiced his displeasure with the celebrations.

"It's not their problem they're playing against a poor team", he said.

The U.S. team cancelled a scheduled training session Wednesday. The U.S. team is here to win a World Cup.
