Lovely cross for the first goal for the USA. They've got a huge height advantage.
The second goal was well got, but the keeper sound do a bit better.

The var incident I thought they got right by not giving the penalty. The player went down very easily. Johnathan Pearce clearly didn't think so though.

It's not just the USA having a height advantage.

The USA is just plain and simple bigger, faster, stronger than everyone on Thailand. Even the shorter players on USA are just clearly better athletes and far, far more skilled than the Thai players.

It's like watching adults play children.

Well if there was any doubt that the Sweden/USA match wouldn't be 1 vs 2 in the group, I think we can put that to rest.

Pearce is just getting on my nerves. He's got both penalty shouts wrong so far.

I think the VAR should have come into action at the end there. TBH I'm not quite sure what they are looking at.

Thailand are getting absolutely destroyed now. It could get a lot worse as they get tired.

Anyone know what the record win is in a World Cup?
USA bound to score 10 at this rate

4 goals in 5 minutes. Ruthless. Then we bring on Carli Lloyd and Christen Press. This is likely to get uglier.

All scrappy goals though - want to see a moment of class rather than watch the goals rack up. They can afford to be patient and be more clever. They are just shipping the ball in and pouncing on mistakes.
