US star Morgan defends 'excessive' celebrations in Thai rout

The LED board displays the final score This was an America First display but USA will not be able to bully everyone at World Cup

"For me it's disrespectful, it's disgraceful".

After making it 9-0 in the 79th minute Tuesday night in Reims, captain Megan Rapinoe held her arms out like airplane wings, twirled and then slid on the ground, kicking her leg into the air repeatedly before continuing the celebration with the American bench. Playing the U.S.is not easy, and we know we have to improve in every aspect.

"For the celebrations - these are goals that we have dreamt of our entire life", Morgan said. There is history of an American team not progressing through the group round of an worldwide tournament on goal differential. Program investment differs wildly by country, and the USA vs Thailand is a stark example of just how much.

Kyle said: "Hats off to Thailand for holding their head high".

"I had a personal goal for three", she said, laughing.

Forbes also reported the French team, which won the men's event a year ago, took home $38 million in prize money. "Everyone is allowed there [sic] opinions towards my thoughts 100 per cent but please leave the death threats!"

Former Canadian global player Kaylyn Kyle, working as an analyst for Canada's TSN at the tournament, said on air: "As a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that". Many youth tournaments have such rules, but the Women's World Cup does not.

Much of the discourse after their victory though, has been about the appropriateness of goal celebrations against Thailand, a team that was clearly overmatched and overwhelmed by the U.S. Women.

Jill Ellis' side had the three points in the bag with a 3-0 lead at half time but impressively, they did not let up after the break against a Thailand side who were well and truly out of their depth, the second half ending in truly embarrassing fashion for the underdogs.

"To be respectful to an opponent is to play hard against an opponent", she said. "Every goal matters in this tournament and that's what we were working on".

The U.S. team cancelled a scheduled training session Wednesday.

However, former U.S. Women's Soccer champion Abby Wambach decided to make the celebrations a gender issue. "For us, the players are excited and I said afterward when you go into a World Cup you can talk tactics, but it's about mentality, it is also about confidence, and so getting off on the right foot is important". Imagine it being you out there.

He also slammed the net facilities at Cardiff as "unsatisfactory" and the squad's hotel in Bristol, which lacks a swimming pool. There have been other inconveniences too, according to de Mel, which he said he has officially brought to the ICC's notice.

Meanwhile, Australia kept its World Cup alive with a spirited comeback against Brazil on Thursday. "Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?" she tweeted.

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour was unapologetic.

"They meant to make an impression in the first match. Go join the 6-year-olds in the park", she wrote.

"This is high-level competition, and the Americans have no reason to apologize for treating it as such".

"Celebrating goals (like #9) leaves a sour taste in my mouth like many of you".

American women faced some backlash after their 13-0 rout of Thailand. Win football matches, but do it with class and grace, and for the love of God don't celebrate too wildly.

The Americans play No. 39 Chile in Paris on Sunday. It's the World Cup.

It is perhaps worth noting that neither 7-0, nor 8-0, nor 9-0 would have been record-breaking scores.

USA's Alex Morgan and Thailand's Miranda Nild.

Lebowitz echoed Wojnar's assessment, adding that "the US women did the right thing on a number of levels".

The reigning champions had to wait five days to start their campaign but produced an ominous performance that doubled as the biggest win in tournament history, surpassing Germany's 11-0 trouncing of Argentina in 2007.
