The United States women's national team produced the most lopsided result in FIFA Women's World Cup history on Tuesday, beating an inferior Thailand squad 13-0 in Reims, France behind five goals from Alex Morgan.
Samantha Mewis opened the floodgates five minutes after the break as the USA made life miserable for the Thais by regularly finding the back of the net.
Forward Alex Morgan scored five, World Cup newcomers Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle both added braces, Lindsey Horan and Mal Pugh also scored in their first-ever World Cup match and vets Carli Lloyd and Megan Rapinoe rounded out the bombardment of goals.

Morgan put her arm around Thailand's Miranda Nild, who was wiping away tears on the field.
