United States Women vs Chile Women Match Preview
United States smashed the record for the biggest ever World Cup victory in their opening game – but still they could not please everyone.
The reigning champions won 13-0 against Thailand and yet were criticised for celebrating every goal enthusiastically to rub salt into the wounds of their beleaguered opponents.
In fairness to the Americans, it was a case of ‘damned if they did and damned if they didn’t’. It could have been perceived as being similarly disrespectful had they not celebrated, as if they were taking it for granted that they would score so many goals.
Alex Morgan, who matched the World Cup individual scoring record of five goals in one match, made the point that “these are goals we’ve dreamt of our entire life”. Only three of her previous 101 international goals had been at a World Cup, so the five-timer clearly meant a great deal.
Group F is the least competitive of the six pools as the United States and Sweden should stroll through to the knockout stage, with Chile having lost 2-0 to the Scandinavian side and it would be a shock if they or Thailand were among the four best third-placed teams who will also advance.
This should not be as one-sided a game as the Americans’ first but they are still expected to win decisively – and it will be interesting to see just how far they take the goal celebrations following the backlash.
