Soccer star receives death threats over 'disgusting' moment at Women's World Cup

Tuesday's result in Reims marked the largest margin of victory in tournament history.

The 13-0 win over Thailand was the largest win at a World Cup in Federation Internationale de Football Association history - between both genders.

For one thing, Rapinoe's goal was not her first in the World Cup.

"I'm all about passion and I think as a Canadian we would never think about doing something like that", said Kyle.

"I think to be respectful to opponents is to play hard against opponents", Ellis told reporters. "Hats off to Thailand for holding their heads high, their first time on a World Cup stage, I'd love to just be there to hug them all".

Kyle subsequently said on social media that her comments had prompted death threats.

"To the people sending me death threats, let me set the record straight", she wrote on Twitter.

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 worldwide tournament.

I've seen enough of the USA team to know that if there's an act to get into, Megan Rapinoe, the flamboyant star midfielder, is probably going to get into it.

"It is a World Cup and you're going to take your opportunities and score those goals", said Scott, who has 144 caps for Canada. "Everyone is allowed their opinions towards my thoughts 100% but please leave the death threats!"

"We will try to get her back on the pitch before the end of the tournament, but we can't make any predictions", said Voss-Tecklenburg, who described the 27 year-old as "irreplaceable".

Social media trolls targeted former Canadian worldwide Kaylyn Kyle with death threats after she criticized the excessive celebrations by the United States during Tuesday's record-breaking win over Thailand in the Women's World Cup.

The Saudi-led coalition which is fighting the Houthis in Yemen said that the injured victims were of "different nationalities". Reuters, quoting unnamed Iranian officials, said Iran plans to ask Abe to mediate with the U.S.to ease those sanctions.

Seven different players scored for the Americans, tying Germany for the most in a World Cup match.

Alex Morgan celebrates with teammates after scoring her side's twelfth goal.

Yesterday at the Women's World Cup, the USA defeated Thailand 13-0.

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

"For the celebrations - these are goals that we have dreamt of our entire life", Morgan said.

"We really wanted to showcase ourselves and what we've been preparing for and working on".

Hence, mismatches like the U.S. -Thailand farce.

Commentators on Canada's TSN World Cup show slammed the displays of glee calling the behavior "disgraceful" and "disrespectful". Imagine it being you out there.

"We have the utmost respect for everyone we play but it's the World Cup and that's part of it".

Rapinoe told ESPN that she was following her heart and doing "what I knew was right all along".
