Commentary

That's all from us tonight folks, we hope you enjoyed the game!
What a performance by the United States, they've shown that they are here to retain their title. They face Chile next, with the Sweden game being the final group match.
The United States demolish Thailand 13-0 in their opening Group F World Cup game, a huge statement to the rest of their rivals. They led 3-0 at the break, but four goals in six minutes made it 7-0 soon after. It looked like that would be the end of the goals, but the US just kept on pushing forward. Morgan grabbed her hat-trick and ended up scoring five in total as she also picked up the player of the match award. Mewis and Lavelle bagged braces, with Rapinoe, Pugh and Lloyd also getting on the scoresheet to make it the biggest World Cup victory ever.

78' It doesn't look like the US are finished just yet! It could be double figures as we still have over 10 minutes left to play.

69' Third and final USA substitution, with Ertz replaced by Pugh.
67' CHANCES! Morgan and Lloyd both have chances to score but Chor-Charoenying makes a couple of good saves.

T. Dangda
R. Thongsombut
Thailand
65' Another Thailand substitution now, with Thongsombut coming off and she has been replaced by Dangda.

61' The US still want to score more goals, with Lloyd and Press now eager to get on the scoresheet as well. Thailand will just want the final whistle to blow now.

56' ANOTHER GOAL! It's 7-0! Four goals in six minutes for the US, what a statement this is to the rest of the competition. Lavelle with her second goal of the game.

S. Mewis
Goal
United States
54' GOOOAAALLL! Another US goal, it's 6-0! Mewis once again the goalscorer. This time is comes from some poor marking in the box and the midfielder finds space at the back post, firing the ball past the keeper from just a couple of yards out.
A. Morgan
Goal

50' Rapinoe is once again the creator for the US team, playing a couple of quick passes around the penalty area, before playing it into Mewis.
S. Mewis
Goal
United States
50' GOOOAAALLL! The US have their fourth goal of the game, it's 4-0! Another player on the scoresheet, with Mewis smashing the ball into the back of the net from just inside the box after Rapinoe lays it off into her path. The shot appears to take a slight deflection off a defender, but it was still always going in.
48' It's all USA at the moment, they are once again dominating possession and pushing forward, looking to extend their lead early in the second half.
46' The second half is underway!
During the first half we had a few US penalty shouts that went up to VAR, but nothing was given despite looking like fouls in open play. If the US keep up the pressure in the second half there could be a few more goals here, with no signs of a Thailand comeback.
The United States dominate the first half and lead 3-0 at the break, with goals from Morgan, Lavelle and Horan. They could and should be further ahead, with numerous chases to score. Morgan had a goal ruled out early on for offside, but she made sure she was onside when they ball came to her next and made no mistakes with her header that made it 1-0. Lavelle scored from long-range on 20 minutes and the Horan made it three after 34 minutes.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: USA 3-0 THAILAND
45' + 2' Another penalty shout! The US have numerous chances in the space of a couple of minutes to score, Thailand appear to just about manage to scramble it away but Horan picks it up again and then goes down theatrically under pressure. Nothing given on the pitch or after a VAR check.
45' + 1' SAVE! Chor-Charoenying has to be alert at her near post to prevent Dunn from a tight angle. Rapinoe plays a free-kick short and Dunn is completely unmarked, but the keeper makes a good save.
45' There will be a minimum of two minutes of added time played.
43' Just a couple of minutes left to play now. Rapinoe finds space down the left wing and tries to whip a first-time ball into the box towards Morgan and Heath, but she gets it all wrong and it flies out of play.
41' The United States are still throwing players forward, almost in a 3-4-3 formation at times, with Lavelle and Horan also getting into attacking positions in the box.
39' There's not long left to play until the break now, will we see any more goals before the half-time whistle?
37' The US' three goals have come off of four shots on target. -They have now scored a headed goal, left footed goal and right footed goal in the same match for the first time since their World Cup Qualifier against Mexico last October.
P. Khueanpet
W. Boothduang
Thailand
35' Thailand have made a substitution early on, with Boothduang coming off and she has been replaced by Khueanpet.
34' It'll be a miracle if Thailand can get anything out of this game now, with the US in total control and we've only played 34 minutes! There could be a few more goals here tonight.
S. Mewis
Assist
United States
32' Mewis tried to go for goal herself, but seemed to get the ball stuck under her feet and instead lays it off to Horan, who makes no mistakes with the finish.
L. Horan
Goal
United States
32' GOOOAAALLL! It's 3-0! Heath whips a low cross into the box from the free-kick, which bounces around the six-yard box off Mewis and a couple of Thailand players, before falling perfectly to Horan who smashes the ball into the roof of the net.
31' Free-kick to the US right on the edge of the penalty area after Heath is tripped up. It looked like it might be just inside the area, but after looking at the replays it has correctly been given as a free-kick.
29' Decent effort! Thongsombut with Thailand's first shot on goal and it's a good strike from long range, but it's straight at Naeher, who comfortably gathers.
28' The US get stretched for a moment down the left wing, with O'Hara trying to see the ball out of play for a goal-kick but the ball doesn't have enough pace on it and she has to smash the ball out of play for a throw-in.
26' That is the seventh headed goal for the United States in 2019, the most by any Women's World Cup team. This ends a stretch of 302 minutes without a goal for Morgan, her third-longest goalless drought since Feb. 2015.
24' Penalty shout! Mewis goes down in the box and it looks like she has her ankles tripped, but the referee waves away the appeals and after a VAR check, nothing is given.
22' CLOSE! It should be 3-0! Morgan misses from just a few yards out, she skies the ball over the crossbar after a low cross into the box by Rapinoe. She should be doing better from that position.
A. Morgan
Assist
United States
20' Morgan dropped deep to get on the ball and played the ball off to Lavelle, who ran at the Thailand defence and unleashed a powerful drive.
R. Lavelle
Goal
United States
20' GOOOAAALLL! The United States double their lead, it's 2-0! Lavelle with a great strike from around 25 yards out, the keeper gets a hand to it, but she just can't push it around the post and it flies into the bottom corner of the net.
18' Naeher in the US goal has just touched the ball for the first time in the game, as they play it around their backline for a few moments.
16' This US team has goals in all areas of the pitch, they look dangerous every time they push forward. Thailand just need to settle down and string a few passes together to slow the pace down.
14' The USA are pushing forward in search of another goal to double their lead straight away, with Thailand unable to get out of their own half.
K. O'Hara
Assist
United States
12' O'Hara had time and space to pick out Morgan, who never looked like she was going to miss.
A. Morgan
Goal
United States
12' GOOOAAALLL! Morgan scores again and this time it's allowed to stand, USA lead 1-0. It starts with Rapinoe down the left, she chips the ball across the box and O'Hara runs onto it in plenty of space, she then whips the ball into the path Morgan at the far post, who makes no mistakes with a simple header from close range.
11' Good effort! O'Hara with an excellent cross from the right wing and Mewis sprints onto the end of it, but she drills her shot high over the crossbar, she just couldn't keep it down.
10' USA have lost just once in 21 Group Stage matches in the FIFA Women’s World Cup (W17 D3), losing 1-2 to Sweden in their final group game in 2011.
8' The United States are continuing to press forward, with Thailand struggling to get a touch on the ball, but they are managing to keep their opponents out of the final third so far.
6' GOAL RULED OUT! USA have the ball in the back of the net, after Morgan taps the ball in from close range following a header by Horan. However, the striker is just offside as she strikes the ball. Although it looks like the ball was heading in without the touch and if Morgan had left it, it would've been a valid goal.
4' Good block! Lavelle plays a quick one-two with Heath down the right wing and then sprints into the box, cuts inside and tries to curl the ball into the top corner, but it's well blocked by Chinwong.
3' Early pressure here by the United Stataes, as expected they are dominating possession and are piling players forward already. Thailand have everyone back behind the ball.
1' We're underway!
The teams are out on the pitch and the anthems are underway, kick-off is just a few minutes away. Stay tuned for all of the match action!
