The United States women’s soccer team made a statement at their first game of the Women’s World Cup on Tuesday.
The USA won in a huge 13-0 victory over Thailand, breaking the record for most goals and widest margin of victory in a World Cup game.
As the goals pilled up, many people took to Twitter to talk about the dominant performance.
Good things to those who wait

But some viewers also criticized the United States for their excessive celebrations during the match.
idk i thought it was disrespectful of the USA women’s team to celebrate after every goal, even when you’re like 12-0 up like show some sportswomanship
