Americans face backlash over biggest women's World Cup win

France World Cup 2019

Goal difference is a tie-breaker at the group stage of this tournament, and may end up deciding whether the USA wins its group.

Kyle, an analyst in TSN for the tournament, was one of those not impressed by the unbridled American jubilation after goals.

"But I think we'd be maybe after the first few, maybe just tone (the celebrations) it down a little".

"I think it's disrespectful if we don't show up and give our best and play our game for 90 minutes", Morgan told ESPN.

Former Canada global Kaylyn Kyle says she has received death threats after calling the United States "disrespectful and disgraceful" for their celebrations in their 13-0 mauling of Thailand.

"To the people sending me death threats, let me set the record STRAIGHT!", she wrote on her verified Twitter account.

The U.S. women's national team's 13-goal outburst in their debut match at this year's World Cup was the most ever scored in a single game at the global tournament. I'll probably never sing the national anthem again, ' she said.

"You celebrate when you score a goal", he said. "Everyone is allowed there [sic] opinions towards my thoughts 100 per cent but please leave the death threats!"

Kyle said the tweet would be her last comment on the issue.

"But this was disgraceful from the United States".

The US team scored 10 goals in the second half in Reims on Tuesday as they bettered Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina in 2007 and shattered their own previous tournament best of 7-0.

Alex Morgan celebrates with teammates after scoring her side's twelfth goal.

Diana Matheson said US coach Jill Ellis should be embarrassed.

"This is a world championship, so every team here has been fantastic to get to this point". I watched the whole game, and I didn't see any celebration that was outside the scope of what we call normal.

After Rapinoe knelt, U.S.

Former U.S. worldwide Taylor Twellman, now a TV analyst, hit out at the players for their celebrations against beleaguered opponents.

The USWNT were already the favorites going into the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup, and they're more than happy to play the villains if it means celebrating their dominance together. Imagine it being you out there.

The lawsuit, which is still in its early stages, notes that women just earned a roster bonus of just $15,000 for making the 2015 World Cup team, compared to $55,000 for men in 2014.

"Because I'm as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don't get to tell me if I can be here or not", she told Yahoo News.

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour was unapologetic.
