U.S. Is 'Ready, Excited, Hungry' As It Takes On Thailand

No World Cup team, men or women, had ever scored 13 goals before. This game likely won't be hard, so coach Jill Ellis might start some of her backups and keep key players benched.

Household namesIn their lawsuit, the players cited that the U.S. Men's National Team players get paid more, even though they are less successful.

With an average age of 29, the US squad is the oldest in the tournament. They have won three World Cups since women joined the event in 1991, four Olympic golds in the last six Games and have topped the Federation Internationale de Football Association women's teams' ratings every year but one for the last 11 years.

There was more late drama in Sweden's 2-0 victory over Chile after the game was interrupted by a lightning storm that forced the players off the pitch for 40 minutes in Rennes.

After torrential rain broke out midway through the second half, which was followed by flashes of lightning, Mexican referee Lucila Venegas chose to take the players off for their own safety.

Asllani's goal, Sweden's 60th in World Cup play, came in the 83rd minute.

Substitute Madelen Janogy then ran through and smashed in the second goal in injury time to wrap up the win for the Swedes, the 2003 World Cup runners-up and beaten Olympic finalists in 2016.

"The interruption definitely upset us".

Along with winning championships and setting records, the US women hope to break through barriers in their sport.

New Zealand's resilient defensive display against the Netherlands came up marginally short at the death as they fell to a 1-0 loss in Le Havre.

American soccer player and 2015 World Cup victor Julie Ertz says her team is thinking mainly about two things: winning and increasing the sport's popularity. "I think the players are ready, excited, hungry", she said in a news conference Monday evening. You're going up against a team that's their first time in the World Cup.

"Anyone who has broken a toe knows how much it hurts", said Voss-Tecklenburg, who described the 27 year-old as "irreplaceable".
