These are grown women playing at the highest level in the world. Deal with it.
Rosemary Calvillo Dodge Dent
I am proud of them. Keep celebrating.

Victory is victory. If it were the other way around, the U.S. would have to clap for the winner.

This is not kindergarten where you get a trophy for participation.
Like in kids baseball and other leagues: 7-run rule. Just go home.
If you want the scoring to stop, stop the game. Call it a TKO.
This ain’t rec league.
Whoever is criticizing the U.S. women’s team either doesn’t know or understand how goal count matters or they are snowflakes.
Some of them have never played in a World Cup. I am going to celebrate, and the more points we make might count later if we have a point tie with another team.
For those who are criticizing the U.S. women’s team or women’s soccer in general, you clearly don’t watch soccer. And it’s also clear you don’t understand how grear U.S. Women’s National Team truly are. They are the most dominant women’s team in the world. Its a shame that the men’s team is an embarrassment. Time to scrap the U.S. men’s team.

Are you serious? Let the critics get out there and try to hang with these athletes, then they can come back and complain. Do they say the same thing when a pro team runs up the score? Nope.
If this was a men’s team no one would even be saying anything. When this happens in baseball, no one says the team should go easy on the losing team.
There were literally tens of people watching. Who really cares?

Two words: Goal differential.

No one says this to any men’s team; get real.
Throwing those participating trophies out of the window.
“If you ain’t first, you’re last.” — Ricky bobby
An anti-American team competing as an American team. So what?
As long as the Thai team gets a participation trophy everyone should be happy.
