And, yet, people were criticizing the US players for their joyful reactions to scoring goals Tuesday during a 13-0 rout of Thailand in France.

As well as Morgan's five goals, Rose Lavelle and Samantha Mewis both scored twice, while there was one goal each for Lindsey Horan, Rapinoe, Mallory Pugh and veteran Carli Lloyd.

The U.S. team cancelled a scheduled training session Wednesday. Or at least its sports broadcasters are.

United States captain Megan Rapinoe said hammering Thailand 13-0 in the Women's World Cup was all "part of growing the game" after a win so lop-sided there were suggestions they should have eased up to save the Thais from embarrassment.

"There are some teams here that, since the last World Cup, have only played a handful of games, or only the qualifiers".

VANCOUVER, BC - JUNE 18: Former Canadian soccer player Kaylyn Kyle received death threats after criticizing the USWNT for excessive celebrating.

They thought the goal celebrations were over the top during the blowout victory and shared their criticism of the USA team during a broadcast following Tuesday's game.

This has rankled with a member of the team's greatest regional rival, Canada.

Naturally, the players celebrated all 13 goals. "If US goes on to fail, their behavior will be on a loop", Hall of Famer - and Fox Sports analyst - Alexi Lalas tweeted.

However, not everyone viewed the rout in a negative light.

The lawsuit, which is still in its early stages, notes that women just earned a roster bonus of just $15,000 for making the 2015 World Cup team, compared to $55,000 for men in 2014. "You're going up against a team that's their first time in the World Cup".

U.S. Soccer officials have disputed allegations of gender-based pay discrimination, as well as the lawsuit's assertions that the women's national team generates more revenue for the federation than the men's team.

"Every goal matters when the goal differential is the tiebreaker in group play".
