USA midfielder Sam Mewis was answering a question about Alex Morgan's incredible performance against Thailand on Tuesday night and said, "Alex getting four goals was insane".

Five different US players scored in the rout.

Substitute Mallory Pugh then scored to put the US up 11-0 and Morgan added her fifth goal of the night to join compatriot Michelle Akers as the only two women to score five in a single match at the World Cup.

There was no other way to describe the US defeating Thailand on Tuesday night to kick off their Women's World Cup title defense.

While the match turned into a blowout, Thailand still deserves some credit for playing hard the whole time and trying to stop the U.S. They easily could have given up when the Americans were up 10-0, but Thailand still made some big stops and saves in the final minutes.

"Honestly, you're going up against a side that is the first time in the World Cup, they're just happy to be there..."

It was the largest margin of victory in World Cup history, men's or women's, outpacing Germany's 11-0 win over Argentina in the 2007 Women's World Cup.

Thailand, ranked No. 34 in the world, was clearly outmatched even though the team has shown progress on the world stage.

Who said soccer is a low-scoring sport? Morgan put her arm around Thailand's Miranda Nild, who was wiping away tears on the field.

It was also Morgan's first-ever World Cup hat trick.

It's the first of three matches for the U.S.in the tournament's opening round. "But we also feel like we've got more to do". "Yes they are athletes and they will be resilient".

The World Cup comes at a time when female players across the globe are seeking better treatment, conditions and pay. For comparison, the US had 39 attempts.

It may not have been a flawless match as several of the players were still finding their groove on the global stage, but the win gave the USA some comfort and confidence heading into their next game against Chile on Sunday. They failed to win the SheBelieves Cup on home soil in March, but have won their last six matches. The two national teams have only faced off once before, resulting in a 9-0 win for the U.S.in 2016. Alyssa Naeher has since replaced Solo, who was dismissed from the team.

Sweden defeated Chile 2-0 earlier on Tuesday in Rennes, a match that featured a 40-minute weather delay.
