  • The U.S. Women’s National Team wants more than just a repeat at the World Cup. ‘We’re going to try to create our own legacy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren expressed support for the US women's national soccer team's legal battle for equal pay on Tuesday, the same day they shattered scoring records with a 13-0 victory over Thailand at the FIFA Women's World Cup.

The U.S. women's national team's 13-goal outburst in their debut match at this year's World Cup was the most ever scored in a single game at the global tournament.

However the team is under scrutiny for continuing to run up the score and excessive celebration with many critics calling their actions "disrespectful". America's Steve Christakos joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss. "For me it´s disrespectful, it´s disgraceful".

One TV commentator said the win was so comprehensive that the U.S. should have stopped attacking late in the game, when the result wasn't in doubt.

Kyle said: "Hats off to Thailand for holding their head high". Respect to Thailand's keeper, Sukanya Chor Charoenying, who managed to not walk off the field or sink into the pitch as the USA women kept coming at her one after the other after the other. You score as many as you can and don't take the foot off the gas pedal!

Fresh off the back of the USWNT's lopsided 13-0 win over Thailand to open its World Cup campaign, a panel on Canadian sports network TSN took some extra time to criticize the US team's exuberant performance. "Celebrating goals later in the game like this is just completely unnecessary", Clare Rustad added. "Their first time on a World Cup stage, I'd just like to hug them all".

Here is what columnists and former players were saying in defense of the USA players.

"This is a world championship so every team that is here has been fantastic to get to this point".

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

Young fans wearing Japanese flag hair ribbons sit on the stand prior the start of the Women's World Cup Group D soccer match between Argentina and Japan at the Parc des Princes in Paris, Monday, June 10, 2019. "Celebrate. Would you tell a men's team to not score or celebrate?" she tweeted.

Rob Stone, meanwhile, the host of the Fox Sports World Cup coverage on American television, sided with Twellman.

The U.S. outshot Thailand 30-2 (21-2 in shots on target) and had 75 percent possession.
