Canadian players say score all you want, but tone down the celebrations

Canadian players say score all you want, but tone down the celebrations

The U.S. women's national team opened their 2019 World Cup campaign with an absolute route over Thailand, defeating the No. 34 ranked team 13-0.

Tuesday's result in Reims marked the largest margin of victory in tournament history.

And as one of three captains, she has held a leadership position on a top-ranked team seeking to win a fourth world title in eight attempts.

"We always want to have any world record and anything we can get over the Germans, we'll take it", Rapinoe said. 'To be respectful to opponents is to play hard against them, ' she said.

When you saw the family of Sam Mewis celebrating her goal, then you can also understand what it means to them.

"As a Canadian we would just never ever think of doing something like that". I've seen much more disrespectful things happen on a football pitch.

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

Kyle said later on social media she had received death threats for her comments, but repeated that she felt the Americans' celebrations were "excessive and disrespectful".

Solo is a 2015 World Cup victor with the USWNT and often regarded as one of the best female goalkeepers of her generation, earning 202 caps with her national team.

"Jill is not the leader I wish her to be", Solo said. You score as many as you can and don't take the foot off the gas pedal!

"The difference between the United States and Thailand - who made the Asian Cup semi-finals just previous year - is complicated and like the chicken and the egg", she wrote in the Guardian.

Canadian players Clare Rustad, Kaylyn Kyle, and Diana Matheson criticised USA stars Megan Rapinoe and Morgan for their euphoria in Reims. "That's the kind of class I want to see from the United States". "I think we wouldn't back off either if were getting the goal-scoring opportunities".

"We have the utmost respect for everyone we play but it's the World Cup and that's part of it".

Alex Morgan of the US celebrates scoring their twelfth goal with Megan Rapinoe and team mate.

The Americans never mocked the Thai players and, at the final whistle, consoled them.

Added Morgan. "Every goal matters in this tournament and that's what we were working on". She's picked up several individual honours as well, having been included in the FIFA FIFPro World XI twice in 2015 and 2016, and named U.S. Soccer Female Athlete of the Year in 2009.

The U.S. rout over Thailand has given rise to a pair of controversies: (1) should the U.S. have run up the score and (2) should U.S. players have indulged in major celebrations after scoring the late goals.

Canadian players were diplomatic Wednesday when asked about the Americans' 13-0 rout of Thailand and the unbridled celebrations accompanying the baker's dozen of goals at the Women's World Cup. Imagine it being you out there. Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?'

USA Today columnist Nancy Armour also had no time for the critics.

The predetermined nature of the celebrations was what bothered Solo the most.
